Chicago Fire- July11th
I’m Krystal, and I’m the Philanthropy Director for the Sons of Ben! I love spearheading the charitable initiatives of the SoB, which are a critical part of our core mission and have been since our founding. It’s really gratifying to see the same people standing up and screaming at every Union match putting as much passion and intensity into supporting really amazing organizations in the Delaware Valley, especially in Chester, our home away from home. Our commitment to being part of the community in Chester is really special, and I love being a part of it.
I’ve had season tickets in Section 139 for the past several years, and had been a dues-paying member of the Sons of Ben, but I wanted to do more and get involved in the club. I had been wanting to get more involved for a while, but wasn’t sure how to make it happen. When I saw that elections were open for the Philanthropy Director position, I knew that it was time to step up. For my day job, I manage pro bono at a large law firm, and I am a member of volunteer and fundraising committees for several local nonprofits. I love working with charitable organizations, especially in fundraising and introducing new people to great organizations. I knew that if I got elected, I could bring my professional charitable background to the SoB, and have a really, really great time while doing it.
On the last day to do so, after mulling it over for weeks, I took a leap and hit “send” on an email to Tim Sosar, our Vice President, to announce my intent to run for the open position. I’m so, so glad that I took the leap! I’m having a ton of fun, working with great people to support the Sons of Ben and advance our charitable causes. I’ve dragged my husband and some of my friends along for the ride, and we all regret not stepping up sooner.
If you’re newer to the club, come to one of our tailgates and introduce yourself! We’d love to get more SoBs involved in what we do. It’s honestly as easy as shooting one of us an email! If you are thinking about getting involved, or have any questions, you can hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me at a tailgate. I’m going to need volunteers to help out at our upcoming cornhole tournament and Pints Fur Pets, so if you’ve been considering getting involved, there’s no time like the present!
