For eight hours Saturday, more than 300 DC professionals making up 25 teams played soccer at three sites in Washington, DC, during the fourth annual District Sports Columbia Heights Cup.
The tournament, organized and run by our longtime partner District Sports, raised almost $9,000 for DC SCORES -- with all proceeds directly benefiting the 1,500 low-income youth our program serves.
"The 2013 Columbia Heights Cup was the most successful with more teams and more money raised than ever before," District Sports Executive Director Alex Bearman said. "We are grateful here at District Sports that we have such a dedicated group of participants who not only love playing soccer but value the importance of supporting organizations like DC SCORES."

The 10-team casual division tournament was held at Bell Multicultural High School, where "Saisgasm" emerged victorious by beating "Georgetown" in the final.
Regardless of results on the field, everyone headed to the tournament's official sponsor spot Lou's City's Bar after their games to redeem free drink tickets, enjoy specials, and watch the MLS Cup together. D.C. United also had a table set up at the bar with giveaways and raffles.
