Sebastien Le Toux hasn’t played for the Philadelphia Union since 2016, but fans will get to see him grace Subaru Park one more time on September 25th for the ’Legends for Peace’ charity game.
Seba will be joined by former fellow Union teammate, Maurice Edu, and MLS stars DeMarcus Beasley, Clint Dempsey, and Jermaine Jones. US Women’s World Cup winner, Heather Mitts, will also be making a special on-field appearance.
The game is being held to raise money for the United Ukrainian American Relief Committee (UUARC), Good360, and the Global Empowerment Mission. These are all non-profit charity organizations, who are providing humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine and victims of the largest refugee crisis since WWII.
There’s no better City than Philadelphia to host such an event. The City of Brotherly Love is already a host city for the 2026 World Cup, is home to the Philadelphia Union, and has seen plenty of key soccer matches played at the Linc.
The United Ukrainian American Relief Committee is the oldest Ukrainian American humanitarian aid organization in the United States.
“It is with humbling gratitude to be a part of the Legends for Peace event. We must remember the peaceful people of Ukraine and their fight for democracy and freedom. The unshakable unity of the Ukrainian people is a constant reminder that there is prosperity as a united front, thus we encourage everyone to continue donating as we unite against Russian aggression.”Motrja Watters, Executive Director of UUARC, Via press release.
“So far, we’ve distributed more than $60 million in essential goods to eight countries, including within Ukraine, but it’s clear there will be critical needs for a long time to come. Partners like Legends for Peace will allow us to continue to deliver support to organizations that are responding at home and abroad. For every dollar in funding we receive, we are able to distribute at least $50 in products, including non-perishable food, personal care items, hygiene kits, clothing, and more.”Jim Alvey, Vice President of Disaster Recovery and Philanthropy at Good360.
Tickets to the game will be available at the Subaru Park box office online. Additional information is available at legendsforpeace.org.
