Proceeds benefit the Emily Johnson Play it Forward Fund, which provides money for two scholarships in Johnson’s name. The scholarships are awarded to two seniors at Coal Ridge High School, one who’s an outstanding soccer player with a passion for the game and another who exemplifies their particular passion in life in some creative way.

The tourney and scholarship fund are both in memory of Johnson, a Coal Ridge High School soccer player who was killed in an all-terrain (ATV) accident in November.
