Professional Soccer Player, Midfielder Julian Gressel Announces First Annual Gresselmania Golf Classic

Donors can help Soccer in the Streets win up to $25,000 in grant money
to fund community building initiatives including StationSoccer

Atlanta soccer fans, get ready to hit the fairways this fall for the first annual Gresselmania Golf Classic, hosted by Atlanta's own, Julian Gressel. The Gresselmania Golf Classic will take place Tuesday, September 3, 2019, at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Georgia. The Gresselmania Golf Classic, created by Gressel and his wife, Casey, will raise funds for Soccer in the Streets to build a new StationSoccer in downtown Atlanta for kids to have access (and transportation) to play soccer.

The Gresselmania Golf Classic - a four-person scramble format - will feature a great day of golf in a stunning setting - the TPC Sugarloaf, crafted by the legendary Greg Norman, and named by Golf Digest, one of the Top 100 Private Clubs in the U.S. when it debuted on the golf scene. The Golf Classic will feature a day on the links golfing with sports and entertainment celebrities, cool contests on the course - including a Hole in One contest sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, food offerings along the course, a VIP Appreciation Post Golf Party, a silent auction with unique experiences and sports memorabilia, and more.

"Ever since we moved to Atlanta, my wife, Casey, and I have wanted to give back to the city that has been so good to us - and help actually move the needle to give more kids access to play spaces," said Gressel. "Next to soccer, golf is definitely one of my favorite sports. So, what better way to raise money than through a golf event? We are partnering with Soccer in the Streets to help make the next StationSoccer location a reality!"

Soccer in the Streets has a vision that all children will have the opportunity to succeed. Soccer in the Streets pursues leveling the playing field for all, affording access to the sport regardless of race, gender, religion, or socio-economic status. They strive to integrate our communities, intertwining efforts from corporations, education systems, government, non-profits, and community leaders to better the lives of youth through soccer.

"We are excited to be the benefactor of the Gresselmania Golf Classic," said Phil Hill, Executive Director of Soccer in the Streets. "Julian has been a great supporter of the program. The funds raised will support our StationSoccer project which is tackling the two biggest issues affecting urban youth participation in sport: affordability and lack of transportation."
