Las Patronas, a philanthropic organization committed to providing financial assistance enhancing the quality of life in our community, has generously given ALBION 12 Foundation a grant for ALBION SC to purchase much needed lighting for our fields. In this regard, the grant has been applied to purchase three light towers, which we will now no longer need to rent.

“To see the Albion 12 Foundation put forth such a quality event and showcase the organization in a whole different light was very rewarding to see. We are very proud of what this event represented and how it was executed.” Wayne Crowe, Director of Soccer

We would like to thank our sponsors, vendors and other contributors for their participation and support!

Light up the Night

By | News | No Comments

The need for new portable lights at Robb Field and our other venues is critical, given that existing light towers are 15 years old, failing, require constant repairs, and lack the lighting capacity present with newer equipment. We desire to put more lights at these fields to better illuminate the complex during these winter months, to enhance our training experience, increase player safety, provide flexibility, and reduce operational costs. These new towers would benefit the Club for the next 15-20 years. We need five new towers, each at a cost of approximately $12,000. Thank you for any support you can contribute to this needed cause.
