The creative folks at UNC Charlotte Center City are putting on another great event this Saturday, April 27, led by community outreach coordinator Donell Stines-Jones. The Community Street Soccer Challenge will take place in the garden in front of the Uptown building (320 E. Ninth St.), featuring a full afternoon of activities, free and open to the public, beginning at 12 p.m.

There'll be soccer clinics for kids provided by FC Carolina Alliance, and competitions between Urban Ministry's StreetSoccer 945, Charlotte 49ers alumni soccer team, and a team from La Raza 106.1 FM. And as usual with events organized by Donell, there'll be plenty of other eclectic and entertaining elements at the event, such as a DJ, food trucks, vendors, a community mural, and a silent auction featuring 30 soccer balls designed by local artists. Proceeds will benefit the Urban Ministry Center.
