Tuesday, Sept. 20 was a stellar night for soccer in the town of Sun Prairie. Not only were Sun Prairie East and West squaring off for the first time in history, the two sides combined for two greater causes.

The over-arching theme of the evening was mental health awareness. The coaches wore t-shirts and wristbands that reflected the effort and proceeds from the game’s concession stand and bake sale benefitted the Sun Prairie Wellness Coalition. The Bank of Sun Prairie also contributed a $500 donation.
