I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to reach out on behalf of
Bright Pink and thank you for your support through your October fundraising
efforts. It's thanks to groups like yours that we will be able to continue
to expand our programs across the country next year and save even more
women's lives from breast and ovarian cancer.

Please pass along our thanks to all of your players!

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

To all Members and Friends,

It is with great sadness that we announce that the President of the American Aid Society, Mr. Sigfried Henz, passed away early this morning. Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife and daughters in this difficult time. Siggy was a great ally to our Chicago Kickers Soccer Club. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace!

The Chicago Kickers would like to offer their sincere condolences for the loss of one of our original members Anna Soehn who passed away peacefully last Saturday afternoon. Anna is seen above with her husband Al, who held the Chicago Kickers presidency for eight years in the 70’s. Anna’s three boys also played many years in our youth program. Anna herself was influential in the start of our adult women’s program, where she played and contributed to a program that still has two active Women's teams today. Anna is seen below in this 1973 photo.

Anna is the Grandmother of 9 grandchildren and will be missed dearly.

He received the proper honors, and his headstone will say "Friend to All". In the upcoming weeks, we will schedule a memorial service at a VFW hall in Elginfor all to attend.

Anyone and everyone can talk about their experiences and we hope to share the day with all who knew him. For additional information, please e-mail John Hummel or Jim Spangler.
