Memphis is one of the most diverse cities in the country. Both Memphis 901
FC and Bluff City
Mafia are proud to promote
inclusiveness and respect for all and that is why we are delighted to partner
with the Focus Center Foundation to
raise funds and awareness for LGBTQ+ issues.
The Focus Center Foundation’s mission is to recognize excellence in LGBTQ+
persons & their allies. The Foundation and its parent publications, Focus
Mid-South and Focus Middle
Tennessee, feature coverage of LGBTQ+ news and
human interest stories both in print and online. The Focus families donate a
portion of their profits to community groups that are working towards equity
and social justice for LGBTQ+ and allies alike. Each year, the Focus
Foundation celebrates this great work with the Focus
Awards, a red-carpet event that honors
those individuals and community groups in the region who go above and beyond
to make a difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ persons.
We ask you to support this great organization by pledging a small amount for
every goal that Memphis 901 score during Pride Month, June 2019. The 901’s
play 1 home match plus 3 away games this June, in addition to our glamour
friendly, the “Battle of the Blues” against Liga MX powerhouse C.F. Pachuca.
ALL money pledged will go directly to the Focus Center Foundation!
In addition please join us at the home game vs Indy Eleven on June 8th as we
have a pride march to the stadium and show our support for both the team and
the diverse city we call home.
- Pledge a few dollars for every goal the 901 score during June.
- Join the BCM at Auto Zone Park and The Brass Door as we cheer the team to victory.
- After June you will be contacted with details of how to donate your money.
