The popular Greenwood Street Soccer Tournament, part of the annual Summer Streets festival on Aug. 9, raised $6,000 for the Innovators Network at Fred Hutch. That includes soccer team registration fees and another $1,168 from Naked City Brewery, which donated one dollar from every pint sold during the event.
Almost 200 hundred soccer players on 32 teams competed in Fun, Competitive and Pro divisions. Each winning team won a trophy and $300 in gift cards to Naked City, The Yard Café, and Phinney Market Pub.
The new youth street soccer fields at Greenwood Avenue and 72nd were so popular that organizers are planning a full youth division tournament next year.
