A U-12 boys
soccer team from Diamond Bar known as the “Dollar Bills” will wear pink socks during their October games to help raise money during Breast Cancer Awareness
Dollar Bills' Coach Peter Gonzales Lee
said “this is a wonderful initiative which I fully support personally, however, all the boys had to agree to it as we would not be able to play with different colored
So Coach Gonzalez Lee was delighted when the entire team chose to
wear the pink socks for their October 12 game which they won 4-1 on goals from
Francis Gonzalez (1), Thomas Avila (2) and Max Garcia (1). The
pink socks proved to be a good luck charm as the team won again this
weekend 2-1 on goals from Sean Rivera and Thomas Avila.
Bills plan to continue wearing pink socks for their remaining game in October and hope that other AYSO teams from Diamond Bar and throughout Southern
California will join them in helping to raise money and awareness to fight this
