Faith and Family Night Is “One-of-a-Kind” Event: Photogallery
Tuesday, 30 August 2011
A sold out crowd of 250 Trinity students, alumni, and friends of the College had great seats for the Chicago Fire soccer game at Faith and Family Night on August 27.
Trinity offered a special ticket package that included a Christian concert featuring Stars Go Dim and The Least of These, a tailgate party sponsored by Chick-fil-A, and the Chicago Fire game against the Colorado Rapids.
Prior to the game, the Trinity Troll entertained friends and family members with an original dance number while the bands performed. Everyone enjoyed fellowship and a Chick-fil-A meal as they waited for the game to start. Members of the women’s soccer team staffed information tables and talked with people interested in learning more about the College.
Trinity guests sat near the goal where the Chicago Fire scored the only two goals of the game, defeating Colorado.
“It turned out to be a great night with a full Trinity crowd and was unlike any other Trinity event I’ve been to. Definitely one of a kind,” said Nate Laning ’06, development and web-based marketing manager. “It was cool to see ‘Trinity Christian College’ and the Troll’s face flashing on the electronic banners surrounding the field,” he added.
“We are so pleased to have partnered with the Chicago Fire on this event,” said Pete Hamstra, vice president for admissions and marketing. “With the success of Trinity’s soccer teams, partnering with the Chicago Fire makes sense but particularly on this event with the emphasis on faith and family.”
