The game took place on Saturday, January 26, 2008 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. A number of Hollywood celebrities and former men’s and women’s soccer players competed against each other in a fun and competitive match.

The Celebrity Soccer Challenge Charity match benefited bone marrow patients and family services at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Mia Hamm Foundation. It is fitting that Girl Talk: Choices and Consequences of Underage Drinking will once again stand behind Mia Hamm and support the Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra Celebrity Soccer Challenge. Like the Mia Hamm Foundation, Girl talk encourages teen girls to live healthy and active lifestyles by providing them with the resources to do so. Girl Talk works to provide girls with accurate youth and girl oriented information to help them make the right decisions when faced with making decisions about alcohol.
