SAN JOSE, Calif., Mar. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer (MLS) continued their efforts to share the love of soccer with the local community by inviting hundreds of soccer-loving youth to watch a live game at Avaya Stadium. A $15,000 donation by Mobilitie, LLC (www.mobilitie.com) helped fund the experience as the company presented a check during pregame festivities of the March 24 friendly match against Club León of Mexico's Liga MX football league.
The check was presented to the Earthquakes Chief Operating Officer, Jared Shawlee, by William Gable, Vice President of Network Deployment, and Ziad Khoury, Director of Wireless Solutions at Mobilitie. The charitable proceeds were used to support over a dozen local nonprofit organizations dedicated to serving San Jose and Bay Area youth. As a result, over 500 youth were able to attend and watch the Earthquakes' 3-2 opening day win against Minnesota United FC on March 3.
"At Mobilitie, it's very important for us to give back to the community," said Christos Karmis, President & CEO of Mobilitie, LLC. "The goals of our partnership with the San Jose Earthquakes, and with other MLS teams, is to help the youth of our communities stay connected with family, friends, teammates and the other social support groups that are so important to their growth and development."
