Due to their close links to Sandy Hook School, Quinnipiac Soccer will be auctioning off #26 shirts donated by soccer teams from around the world to raise money for a scholarship fund in memory of Rachel Marie D’Avino.
Rachel was one of the 26 victims of the tragic shooting that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on December 14, 2012.
To date the soccer community has committed over 100 shirts to the auction including signed shirts from Lionel Messi, Tottenham Hotspur, Celtic, Manchester United, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and the US Men’s and Women’s National Teams.
The proceeds of the auction will be used to establish a scholarship fund in memory of the 20 students and six teachers who died at Sandy Hook and will be dedicated in honor of Rachel.
