The night will be kicked-off with a raffle of prized soccer artifacts and a personally guided tours through "The Art of Sport + Play," an exhibit about how sport and play changes lives the world over.

The evening begins at 6 pm with a reception that includes tours of the Sport + Play exhibit created by author and social-change agent Kevin Carroll. Meet special guest players from the Portland Timbers and Thorns soccer teams and hear stories about how soccer changed their lives and their communities. Learn how Mercy Corps uses sport to promote reconciliation and recovery in areas struggling with violence and conflict, and where people are healing and rebuilding in the aftermath of natural disasters.

"The Beautiful Game" is an inspirational feature documentary about the power of soccer in modern Africa. Soccer, unlike anything else, builds community across a continent of 54 countries often at odds with each other. In the words of Desmond Tutu, featured in the film, "soccer isn't like a religion in Africa.  It is bigger than a religion." Weaving together stories of 6 African nations, "The Beautiful Game" offers proof that soccer is a time-honored and overwhelmingly successful developmental force.
