Originally, our plan was to hold another spring event in 2020, honoring one of our soccer community’s unifying figures. Like our 2019 Night with Alan Hinton & Friends, it would help WA Legends raise operating funds and continue building community and honoring our history. It would have also provided a platform to renew and expand our efforts to positively change the lives of our youth, particularly those in underserved areas.

As we all know, the world is now in the middle of a pandemic. Our plans and everyone’s best laid plans have been put on infinite hold. Still, boys and girls throughout Washington are graduating high school and progressing through college. We are committed to helping them realize their goals, and so we are asking for help in replenishing and perhaps even growing our scholarship fund.

We know people are hurting and facing huge challenges. However, if you can do so, we ask that you consider donating to our WA Legends/Alan Hinton Scholarship fund. And if you know a worthy candidate for receiving scholarship aid, see our adjoining article and download an application form. Deadline for entry is May 15.
