Arts Festival just around the corner: we need your help!

What better way to get in on the action with one of Des Moines’ BIGGEST events than to VOLUNTEER with the CARLISLE SOCCER CLUB at our beer/wine tent at the Des Moines Arts Festival. 

Grab a few of your friends, family or co-workers and sign up for a shift or two! This is a great way to give back to the community and have some fun while your doing it!  

The weekend of the Arts Festival is June 22-24 and you can sign up to volunteer here.  

If you have never joined in on the fun at the Arts Festival before you will have to take a one-hour beer/wine training session. This session is May 17th from 11:30-12:30pm or 5:30-6:30pm at the Des Moines Playhouse. Another date will also be offered in June, that is TBD. When you sign up to volunteer you will get the information for the session. (If you’ve served at our tent in past years, you’ll just need to sign a form stating that you’ve taken the class.) Please remember to put your shirt size in as well!! 

Admission to the festival is free. This will not cost you anything. UNLESS, you take time for yourself to stay and enjoy the Arts Festival before or after your shift and buy some great art!  

The Arts Festival is a HUGE fundraiser for our Soccer Club!! This eliminates our children (or us as parents!!) going door to door to do fundraising! So, again come on out and enjoy the Arts Festival and help promote Carlisle Soccer!   

Spread the word!  If you know of someone that would like to volunteer point them in our direction!  We enjoy new faces! For more information, contact Melissa Karnatz, director of volunteers, at 240-7026.  

Buy, finance or refinance your home and score a big donation!

Thinking about buying or selling your house? Here’s a chance to help the Carlisle Soccer Club and it won’t cost you a dime.

Carlisle soccer parents Deric and Kathy Kidd have teamed up to offer a fantastic deal for home buyers and sellers..and the Carlisle Soccer Club. When you buy or sell your home with Kathy, a Realtor with REMAX Opportunities in Ankeny, she will donate 25% of the net Realtor professional fees to the Club in your name. When you finance (or refinance) with Deric, a senior loan officer with Academy Mortgage in Urbandale, He will donate up to $400 of the banker’s fees.

Buying a $180,000 home, for example, would mean a donation of approximately $1,400 to $1,600 to the Club with no cost to you! If Kathy sells your home and helps you buy one, the donation could be more than $2,500!  

This offers applies when you buy a home, sell a home, or refinance. There is no increase in fees to cover these contributions. This offer applies to anywhere in the Des Moines metro and surrounding communities, so tell your family, friends and co-workers. It’s just the Kidd’s way of giving back to the community.
