Capitol Cup - May2018


Before the Sacramento Republic FC took on the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on April 18, Papa Murphy’s Park hosted the second annual Capitol Cup soccer match between California Democrats and Republicans. Sacramento Republic FC, Strategies 360 and a collaboration of many legislators’ offices came together to raise funds for Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) and WEAVE. The event raised $25,000 for each organization, an incredibly impactful gift for both charities.

SFBFS connected with Greg Hayes, Vice President of Strategies 360, to learn more about his motivations for supporting SFBFS through his fun event. “I’ve long been familiar with the work of SFBFS to have a long-term impact on our community by creating a fully integrated system to address hunger issues. SFBFS’ efforts not only deal with meeting the needs of food insecure people in our community, but also looking at what needs they may have that help them get back on their feet as well,” shares Greg. “I’ve volunteered before and done the Run to Feed the Hungry along with 30,000 other people, but I wanted to do something that could have a bigger impact.”

The event, attended by soccer fans and politicos alike, drew a large crowd, raising awareness for both organizations, while mixing in a little competition. Fans cheered for their favorite players and jointly celebrated the win to help families in our community. Final score:

  • Democrats – 2
  • Republicans – 1 

Strategies 360 encourages others to get involved and support their favorite organization. “SFBFS does the most important work in our community helping the most disadvantaged people who need a hand up,” shares Greg. “It is where you can have the biggest impact because helping people in greatest need has the greatest benefit.”
