Interim HealthCare Partners with CESA in Fundraising for Japanese Red Cross
April 7, 2011, Greenville, SC — Interim HealthCare and Carolina Elite Soccer Academy (CESA) found a unique way to assist those suffering from the recent 9.0 magnitude earthquake and 32 foot tsunami that recently caused the devastation in Japan -- through our local American Red Cross, assisting the Japanese Red Cross.
This weekend, April 8-10, Interim HealthCare is the primary sponsor of the annual CESA Spring Challenge Soccer Tournament, hosting 244 teams from local clubs and many other states.
Donations will be sought for the Red Cross in its lifesaving assistance to the Japanese. Interim HealthCare and CESA have pledged to give $1.00 for every goal scored in the tournament.
“To open our hearts and our pocketbooks to possibly alleviate the pain and loss of our Japanese friends seems so right to me during this super tournament,” noted Ray Schroeder, CEO of Interim.
Pearse Tormey, Co-Executive Director of CESA commented, “It just seems right to be there for those folks in Japan trying to dig out from these horrendous natural disasters at a time we seem so safe and protected.”
Gifts will be accepted during the tournament and delivered by Interim and CESA to the Red Cross as listed:
