The Spartans will be joined at the event by Spartanburg Methodist College, Southern Wesleyan University and Louisburg College. Each game Saturday will last 30 minutes and are a traditional 11-on-11 contest.
"We are really excited to be helping such a wonderful cause and organization," said Interim Head Women's Soccer Coach, Marcie Klebanow. "With this effort we hope to continue to enhance our players' awareness of the community and how much of a positive impact they can have on those around them. All of the donations will be given to the Gibbs Cancer Center with the intention of making a difference in someone else's life."
