For the second year in a row, the Timbers Army included Cascadia on its short list of organizations that they support with tickets to the popular local Major League Soccer team’s pre-season games.

From Angela Markham at Cascadia’s Rain Garden in Wilsonville: “The first game, our staff member Meghan (also a huge Timbers fan) took a great group of guys. They had pizza at Hot Lips and found great seats in the upper levels of the TA section. Two of the guys are huge Timbers fans and attended several games last season with our facility. They were very excited to see the Timbers play again, see captain Jack (who is their favorite Timber), and just be back in Jeld-Wen. For the third guy, it was his very first Timbers match, but he was very excited. The other guys helped him find Hot Lips Pizza, helped him find his way around Jeld-Wen, and taught him some of the cheers. Our staff member began to tell him the basic rules of soccer and he explained that he had played soccer as a young adult in the Portland area. They enjoyed the game very much.”

Thank you Timbers Army!
