“I have a passion for supporting youth soccer programs and have fond memories of playing at the National Sports Center, so when Schwan’s asked me to join them at the Schwan’s USA CUP, I couldn’t refuse,” Hamm said. “I’m really excited to be a part of this event and help these young players build their love of the game.”

On Wednesday, July 18, Hamm will join us at the largest youth soccer tournament in the Western Hemisphere, Schwan’s USA CUP, held at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota. While there, she will sign autographs and present the Schwan’s Cares™ About Soccer Sweepstakes grand prize to one lucky team. The winning team will be recognized at the event and have their tournament entry fees covered by Schwan’s. To qualify, players and their families created a fundraising campaign for their team expenses through the Schwan’s Cares program.

Also on July 18, Hamm will attend Minnesota United’s match against New England Revolution at TCF Bank Stadium, where she will visit with the Schwan’s Youth Club of the Match, a local youth soccer team recognized during the game as one that makes a positive impact within the community. Tickets for the game are available at MNUFC.COM.

“At Schwan’s, we are celebrating more than 20 years as the signature sponsor of Schwan’s USA CUP and our growing partnership with Minnesota United FC on their youth soccer initiatives,” said Pat Anderson, vice president of marketing and sales for Schwan’s. “What better way to celebrate than to bring a legendary soccer player and mom to meet with young athletes and fans and share tips on how families can fuel up with Schwan’s delicious and easy meals all season long?”

Schwan's Cares fundraisers at work in the community

The Schwan’s Cares program helps local communities raise funds for local educational, non-profit and youth-sports programs, raising more than $12.5 million since 2006. The primary benefits of participating in a Schwan’s Cares fundraising program is that people can raise money quickly and easily by earning up to 40 percent cash back on Schwan’s orders. Other benefits include that it’s entirely online; there are no order forms, no money handling, no product sorting, and products are delivered by a friendly Schwan’s representative.

With a grill, delicious food and family and friends, the peak summer holiday is sure to be a great one.

Lastly, a meal wouldn’t be complete without a dessert. See what our chefs recommended:

  • Grilled Apple Pie. It really works so go ahead and try it. Surprise your dinner guests with a simple dessert that starts on the grill. Don’t forget to top with Schwan’s® ice cream.
