As an Official Dining Sponsor of AYSO, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse has been actively working to make a personal connection with local AYSO communities.
Region 89 in La Mesa, Calif., has saved hundreds of dollars in their operating budget from the support of their local BJ’s Restaurant. Regional Commissioner Stephen Cashman believes that having BJ’s as a National Sponsor has been an invaluable resource for his Region. “We were delighted that they supported our La Mesa AYSO #SoccerFEST14 event by being onsite at our fields and providing free pizza to all of our 250 players, parents and guests,” said Cashman. BJ’s also donated food to feed Cashman’s volunteers and Board Members at Region 89’s most recent registration event.
Local Restaurant Manager, Sean Sneddon, and General Manager, Ryan Olivieri, have helped facilitate fundraisers, pizza parties and Board meetings with Region 89. “Every time they have an event coming up, they give me a call to see how BJ’s Restaurant can be involved,” said Sneddon. BJ’s offers a family-friendly environment with seating available for groups of any size. Cashman personally chooses BJ’s because “they believe in and support the mission and vision of AYSO.” Plus his players love their handcrafted root beer!
