Tomorrow night, Sunday the 31st, Old North Arcade (2591 North High Street, Columbus) will be putting on a FIFA 16 tournament. All benefits from this event will be given to the Columbus Crew SC Foundation Kirk Urso Memorial Fund. Registration for the tournament, which I am told will be on the PS4 system, begins at five, on a first come, first served basis. The entry fee is ten dollars, all of which goes directly to the Urso fund. There will be prizes, not only for the winner of the tournament, but door prizes as well (including some from Crew SC).
This even follows last season's Cutthroat Karaoke event held at Hendoc's Pub, which was also to raise money for the Urso Fund.
The Kirk Urso Memorial Fund is named in honor of the Columbus Crew midfielder who passed away in August of 2012 from an undiagnosed cardiovascular condition, Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy. He was only 22. His untimely passing rocked the Crew SC community, and the fund serves to honor his memory, aiding in research for youth heart health research.
If you are unable to attend the event but would like to know more about the fund, or make a donation, more info can be found HERE.
Hope to see you tomorrow night.
