After hundreds of caption submissions and thousands of votes, AYSO has named a winner in the Ride the Float Caption Contest!
Congratulations to Martha Lopez and her daughter Angie for collecting the most votes and winning the contest. Come Jan. 1, 2014, Martha and Angie will be riding the AYSO-Torrance float in the Rose Parade®.
Martha is a longtime volunteer from AYSO Region 66 in Ontario, Calif. She has been volunteering in a variety of positions in her Region for 11 years, and is currently a Division Coordinator.
When she's not helping her mom out with her volunteering responsibilities, Angie, 12, plays U-14 soccer.
"The contest was so much fun, it gave me the opportunity to reunite with family and friends," said Martha. "Region 66 will be represented at the 2014 Rose Parade®! Thank you so much, AYSO!"
Riding the float along with the contest winners will be Cobi Jones, AYSO alum and former U.S. Men's National team star. For more information on AYSO's float in the upcoming Rose Parade®, stay tuned to AYSO Insider.
