Date Posted: 1/10/2019

The 2nd Annual Kick-Back Bash is almost here!!!! That’s right everyone, it’s the time of year that we have all been waiting for, the club’s largest fundraiser and largest party, and it means a great “Adult’s Only” night out for an even greater cause.

We are revving up the energy and level of the event this year hosting it at the Team Center on the Campus of Hendrick Motorsports, the hands down most successful active NASCAR team in the sport, and their facilities echo that championship mentality through and through.  All proceeds generated will go to support the LNSC Financial Assistance Program.

LNSC Director of Operations – Scott Flowers said of the event, “The LNSC Annual Kick-Back Bash is overall just a great night that celebrates the people and strength of our community for a great cause.  Last year, everyone raved about the food prepared by our very own LNSC members: Chad Metzler, Dusty Muckenthaler, and Kelli Stoup. Heading into this year, I could not be more excited about our new location at Hendrick Motorsports.  The move to this location is going to allow us to grow the event even larger, and we are hoping to see all of our teams represented this year from our Youth Academy through our Senior Programs, and we have the chance to enjoy the fun LNSC family environment that makes us special.”

The Kick-Back Bash is a casual party that includes food and drinks (all patrons receive a drink ticket and then there will be a cash bar).  There will also be games, prize raffles, a wine pull, a silent auction, and maybe a surprise or two rounding out the fun for the evening.

A complete list of raffle and auction items will be sent out prior to the event, but some of the awesome items we already have pouring in are gear featuring Nike teams: Barcelona, PSG, Man City and the US Men’s and Women’s National Team apparel, free rounds of golf, golf equipment, signed sports memorabilia, and gift certificates to a variety of local businesses.

Leslie Gerwitz - LNSC Director of Finance and Administration said of the event, “Last year’s Bash, being a new event for us, far surpassed expectations and was a great way to support the club’s Financial Assistance Program and enjoy life away from the soccer fields.  It’s nice to see everyone in a different environment.  Events like this help to bind the club together in other ways…proving we are a community not just a soccer club”.


The 2nd annual Kick-Back Bash will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm at Hendrick Motorsports Team Center.

Tickets are $45 per person or $80 per couple and include unlimited food, one drink ticket per person (there will also be a cash bar), and a raffle ticket. The night's menu is shown below. Ticket may be purchased through the website:

Please buy your tickets today and help support the club with this fun event. Remember, you don’t have to be a member of LNSC to come.  Bring your friends and family.

LNSC Executive Director - Chad Metzler said of the event, “this event is a fun social event and chance to enjoy the club families, friends, and sponsors away from the field, it is at heart the largest single fundraising event we host each year playing a major role in our ability to award tens of thousands of dollars to families in our club helping make soccer more affordable and accessible in our area. LNSC financial assistance is available for all LNSC families and awarded on a need-only basis (it is not merit based). But, we are able to award only around 25% of what is requested, as our assistance fund comes from a budgeted percent of revenue, individual donations, and proceeds from certain events such as this one. Our goal is to provide a high-quality soccer experience for all, as affordably as possible".
