You all know I am a sucker for a man in uniform…but add a man in uniform, who is giving of himself to help children in need…enter Steve Nash and the Steve Nash Foundation’s Showdown in Chinatown. Don’t you just love him? Yes, I heart him and all of his closest, legendary friends for volunteering their time and efforts to help kids…(insert my heart melting a bit).
Now you can be a part of this gathering of who’s-who on the basketball and soccer world!
NBA stars. Soccer’s best. An urban field. A sweet 8-a-side game of futbol in the middle of a city benefiting children everywhere. Steve brings his passion to play in this innovative soccer match that any sports fan will love. Showcasing athletes from two sports, Showdown is the beautiful game at its most creative. With international NBA and professional soccer rosters that have included Steve Nash, Thierry Henry, Claudio Reyna, Tony Parker, Adrian Mutu, Grant Hill, Ivan Cordoba, Baron Davis, Javier Zanetti, Ryan Babel, Brandon Jennings, Salomon Kalou, Simone Sandri, Martin Nash, Mathieu Flamini, Edgar Davids and Chris Bosh, the Showdowns are events not to be missed! The Showdown in Chinatown is a free-to-the-public event located in Sara D. Roosevelt Park (Chrystie Street and Stanton Street) on the Lower East Side of New York City. There’s nothing like the Showdown. The Showdown in Chinatown is a FREE event. Bleacher seating and standing room are on a first-come, first-served basis
Showdown After Hours (the rockin’ after-party with Showdown players) tickets and Showdown gear are now available – click the links at right to get in on the action… . BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW for this epic after party…I DID and plan on rubbing elbows with some very special soccer and basketball players all evening (who will hopefully still be clad in uniform and perhaps a little dirty from the field – a girl can dream, can’t she?!)
If you can’t make the event, you can purchase a t-shirt or make a straight donation to help the Steve Nash Foundation and its efforts to help children across the US!
