Busch, Quakes team up for Navy SEAL Foundation fundraiser

SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes and goalkeeper Jon Busch have partnered to offer fans a chance to give back to the United States Armed Forces with a special Saves for SEALs Supporters’ Section package for the club’s June 29 match against the LA Galaxy at Stanford Stadium.


The ticket offer includes four seats in Section 125 (rows D-H) as well as four T-shirts and a post-game meet and greet with Busch. The veteran goalkeeper will watch the post-game fireworks extravaganza alongside fans in the section and then pose for photos and sign autographs. The price of each package is $200 with proceeds benefiting the Navy SEAL Foundation.

In addition to the Saves for SEALs Supporters’ Section, Busch will wear a pair of adidas Predator LZ TRX FG boots emblazoned with “8/6/2011” and “Honor and remember.” He will also don a pair of his own gloves (www.hpgoalkeeping.com) with a Navy SEAL patch. The cleats and gloves will be available to purchase through a charity auction. All proceeds from the auctions will again benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation.

Fans can also help the cause by making a donation to the Saves for SEALs program. For more information on how to submit a donation, contact the club’s community relations manager, Alison High, at ahigh@sjearthquakes.com.

Busch is an avid supporter of the United States Armed Forces. For the second year in a row, he is donating $50 for each save he makes to the Navy SEAL Foundation. In 2012, he and the Earthquakes Community Fund raised $8,100 through the Saves for SEALs program.
