The Pinecrest Premier Soccer Club (PPSC) marked the fall season’s opening day with a kick-off event at Evelyn Greer Park.
TotalBank and other businesses in the community supported the gala event by providing balloons, banners, refreshments and a photo booth to help make opening day a festive occasion that brought families from the community together.
“Each year we await the start of the fall season with great anticipation,” said Renato Salazar, president of Pinecrest Premier Soccer Club and senior vice president at TotalBank. “Soccer is an excellent way for us to come together as a community. It provides young ones with an opportunity to not only acquire the technical skills of the sport, but instill team building as well.”
More than 1,375 children enrolled in the Pinecrest Premier program, many as young as four years old, and participated in matches throughout the day.
The PPSC recreation program for children ages 4-10 is the developmental arm of the organization, created to help children have fun while learning good sportsmanship, acquiring knowledge of the game and improving skills.
TotalBank, a member of Grupo Banco Popular Español, has served the South Florida community for 38 years and has more than $2.5 billion in assets and 19 locations in Miami-Dade County.
