“Our local and international players are proud to represent the Santa Clarita Valley and to especially give back to the community who so solidly supported the team during its first season,” said Blue Heat owner, Carlos Marroquin.
On Saturday, May 14, several Blue Heat players will be participating in the National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive” from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Creekside Post Office at the corner of McBean Parkway and Creekside Road.
In addition, targeted food donations will be accepted at all home games in exchange for entry to the game. At the Blue Heat’s inaugural game on Sunday May 22, spectators may bring four (4) boxes of macaroni and cheese for one admission at Valencia High School. Game time is 7:00 pm.
