Soccer volunteers at Northeast Elementary BBQ and Carnival


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- The Golden Eagle soccer team lent an eager hand Saturday evening to the Northeast Elementary Parent Teach Organization as they helped host a BBQ and Carnival. The event went off without a hitch as purple pride spread throughout the celebration. 

The team worked in the booths this year, giving the parents a chance to enjoy the carnival with their children rather than work behind the scenes. The players lead bingo, oversaw bounce houses, participated in a dunk booth and a cakewalk. The carnival also featured a true Southern BBQ.

The proceeds of the dinner and the carnival will go toward new playground equipment for the elementary school. Proceeds will also be put toward a fund for new technology in the classrooms. 

The soccer team has spent every spare moment lending a helping hand this season, and they will continue to donate their time Sunday when they will help with raise awareness about diabetes at the Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes.
