Welcome to the Father Christmas Cup

We would like to express a huge thank you to all participants, attendees, volunteers, and sponsors for the 2016 Father Christmas Cup. This year was a big success thanks to all of you. We had relatively good weather and everyone enjoyed great comradery and support for the beneficiary families and friends. We honored well some of the great individuals we lost this year. Check back here often for additional information throughout the year. And, it is not too late to make a donation to the families.

The 2016 Father Christmas Cup will be held on Saturday December 17, 2016 at the Atlanta Silverbacks Park. We are looking forward to a great day of remembrance, camaraderie, and support. We have adult and youth teams playing soccer. We also have many great raffle prizes for both kids and adults. Come out and support the families. Check this site often for updated information.
