Cocktails With a Kick

Starfinder Foundation fundraiser benefits soccer programs

Cozen O’Connor hosted “Cocktails with a Kick” which raised funds for Starfinder Foundation earlier this month. Since 2002, Starfinder’s soccer, educational, and personal development programs have been inspiring young people from underserved communities to achieve success both on and off the field. Starfinder helps youth become healthier, more successful in school, and prepared for life through soccer-based after-school and summer programs. Guests enjoyed cocktails and light bites while mingling and learning about the Starfinder program.
