In a league of their own: In the spirt of teamwork taught by youth sports, Greenwood Chevrolet is teaming up with Austintown Junior Soccer League to provide their players and coaches with soccer kits filled with equipment bags, soccer balls, sport cones, practice jerseys and T-shirts, a monetary donation and the chance to raise funds. Above, a one-time donation check is presented from Greenwood to the Austintown league. The league has the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraiser in which a lucky recipient will win the choice of a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox or Malibu. Another winner will receive a home entertainment package. Greenwood and other area Chevrolet dealerships are donating the prizes to participating leagues. They can use the funds in any way they choose, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to the leagues. Some leagues plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, and others will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.
