Celiac Disease Awareness Night with the San Jose Earthquakes

One of the things I really was missing since my move to the West Coast was being really active in the celiac community. I did start a Santa Cruz Celiac group on Facebook and also became a co-organizer of the Santa Cruz Gluten-Free Meetup group. It just hasn't been quite the same as my involvement in the celiac community as when I lived in New York City. When the opportunity arose last month to help the Celiac Community Foundation for Northern California plan a summer fundraiser, I jumped right in.

I am so excited to announce Celiac Disease Awareness Night with the San Jose Earthquakes. This is a big game between the San Jose Earthquakes and their rivals, the Los Angeles Galaxy which will be held at Stanford Stadium. I am so excited for a few reasons

  1. It's a fundraiser to benefit the Celiac Community Foundation for NorCal and Camp Celiac
  2. I've never been to a professional soccer game.
  3. I've never been to Stanford University.
  4. This "California Clasico" rivals match between the San Jose Earthquakes and the Los Angeles Galaxy is so popular that it usually sells out ever year. 
  5. There is going to be a gluten-free TACO TRUCK! (Thank you Oaxacan Kitchen Mobile!)
  6. There are fireworks after the game.
If those aren't enough reasons to run and buy tickets to this game, I don't know what is! I can't wait to meet more people living with celiac disease in the San Francisco Bay area as well as enjoy an MLS game with fireworks.
