The Soccer Association of Columbia/ Howard County and Elite Tournaments are proud to announce we will be hosting a donation drive for the Children’s Hospital at Sinai during the 2024 Amanda Post Memorial Tournament. We are excited to continue this initiative for the 2024 event.

While Amanda was battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia, instead of playing soccer, she would spend months at a time at the Children’s Hospital at Sinai. In memory of Amanda’s strength and effort, we would like to invite you all to donate items that will benefit the children and families receiving treatment at that same facility. The Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai helps patients fight a wide variety of childhood illnesses and treats patients on both a local and national level. We appreciate the testament to Amanda’s memory and thank you all for helping her passion for others live on through this generous act of kindness.

All items can be dropped off with the Site Coordinator or Field Marshal of your tournament site at the Amanda Post Memorial Tournament.

If you have any questions or would like to donate and cannot attend the event, please contact Cara Martin at [email protected].
