The 28th annual Alumni Soccer Games will be held Saturday, Aug. 13, at Wapakoneta High School's Ryan Field.

The event, which is open to the public, is a fundraiser to support WHS' boys and girls soccer programs. Alumni need not play in the games in order to support the fundraiser.

At 10:30 a.m., Ryan Field will be open to all attendees.

The first of four games will begin at 2:30 p.m. with current high school girls against alumni women with another one at 5:30. The second and fourth games, which will start at 3:30 and 7, respectively, will be played between current high school boys and alumni men.

Alumni wishing to play need to sign up upon arriving and can purchase a T-shirt for $10. It is not necessary to buy a T-shirt in order to play.

Chicken dinners will be sold for $8 each starting at noon until they are sold out. A concession stand plus other fundraisers such as raffles and drawings will also start at noon.

Four tickets to a late August Columbus Crew game will be raffled off. Tickets for that raffle cost $5 each.
