The Gladiators Light the Lamp program will raise money for the many North Metro Atlanta Area charities currently being served by the Gladiators Foundation for Kids. Through the program, fans and corporate partners will have the opportunity to pledge a monetary donation for each home goal that the Gladiators score during the 2005 – 2006 season.
Peggy Slappey Properties has signed on as a Sponsor for the Program donating $50 for each home goal scored during the 2005-06 season.
The Gladiators, in their third season of play, have generally been amongst the league leaders in total goals scored as well as home goals scored. Last year, including the post-season, the Gladiators scored 147 goals at the Arena at Gwinnett Center.
The Light the Lamp Program allows both businesses and individuals to pledge. The program was set up to encourage fans of all ages to join in as donations of every financial level will be accepted beginning at only 25 cents per home goal scored.
Throughout the season, fans may keep track of the amount of money raised for charity through the Gladiators Light the Lamp update on the team website and through the Light the Lamp Report during each Gladiators home game and game broadcast. All proceeds from the Light the Lamp Program will be donated to the Gladiators Foundation for Kids. The foundation benefits many North Metro Atlanta area charities and focuses primarily, although not exclusively, on charities that assist or enrich the lives of children. The Foundation is monitored by the Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia which is a registered 501-C3 not-for-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Since its inception in the summer of 2004, the Gladiators Foundation for Kids has provided cash grants totaling $ 20,000 to local charitable organizations.
