Kelsey Davis, a 2009 University of Portland graduate and former goalkeeper for the Pilot women’s soccer team, is sponsoring a free viewing of a documentary called “Kicking It,” a film about an organization call the Homeless World Cup. The film will be shown at 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 in Buckley Center Auditorium on the campus. Doors open at 3 p.m., and the event is open to the public with a suggested $5 donation at the door.
Davis, who plays for the Boston Breakers in women’s professional soccer, is promoting the Homeless World Cup, which pioneers social enterprise and aims to end homelessness in the world
Raffle tickets will be sold at the door. The raffle includes a U.S. women’s national team jersey signed by the whole team, a Portland Timbers ball/scarf signed by the players, a book by the president of the Homeless World Cup, and an Angie Wozniak (also a former UP star) Women’s Professional Soccer jersey.
Davis says she hopes to create a more prominent culture of street soccer, "helping social justice in Portland."
