In Closing  

A big thank you from both clubs for the universal efforts of all involved.  In the decade plus history of Marin FC, this is the first time every team has made a meaningful contribution to the revenue total.  We truly appreciate your time, effort and financial gifts and thank you for all you to do to create opportunities for all to enjoy “the beautiful game.”


Separately, as Marin FC’s Development Director and Raffle Coordinator, I’d like to thank and acknowledge the following folks for their many contributions to the success of this year’s event:

  • The respective club Presidents, Evan Cross and Ryan Robinett, for all they do behind the scenes that goes largely unnoticed and on occasion unappreciated
  • Korina Park for all she did to make the CM raffle effort so “turnkey”
  • The army of volunteers that turned out on Field Day to make the event tick
  • The Team Managers and fundraising liaisons from both clubs for all they did to collect payments in what was a challenging countdown week for all

Thanks to you all, the funds generated from this year’s raffle will support many important initiatives, including financial aid, player development programming, and coach education.  Thank you for making a difference and for all you do to make the realities of competitive soccer a viable option for all.


Best regards,
Ian Tonks, Marin FC Director of Development
