Soccer girls net profit

Riley Dean and Jessica Freeman

Riley Dean and Jessica Freeman spent the last days of their summer vacation baking treats for a bake sale. The girls made more than $440 at the Issaquah Farmers Market on Aug. 28.

They plan to donate the money to Soccer Saves, an organization committed to creating healthy lifestyles for disadvantaged youth. Soccer Saves partners with global humanitarian organizations working to provide HIV/AIDS education, nutrition and gender equality and to decrease gang violence by using the power of soccer.

Both Dean and Freeman play soccer for GU-13, an Eastside FC team. They know that $50 buys a Soccer Saves child admission for a year, meaning they just raised enough money to help eight players.
