CHICAGO (June 20, 2016) - U.S. Men’s National Team captain Michael Bradley has donated the unique rainbow captain’s armband and his game jersey worn during the USA’s 2-1 win against Ecuador for an online charity auction to be held from June 20-24.
Proceeds from the online auction will benefit the OneOrlando Fund and Equality Florida, two organizations providing financial resources to victims and families impacted by the Pulse nightclub mass shooting earlier this month.
Bradley wore the specially-made armband to honor the victims of the tragic attack in Orlando. He will add a personalized autograph to the jersey, and will also make a donation to the funds.
The purpose of the OneOrlando Fund is to provide a way to help respond to the needs of our community after the Pulse tragedy.
Equality Florida consists of two organizations; Equality Florida Institute, Inc., a 501(c)(3) educational charity and Equality Florida Action, Inc., our 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. Together, these organizations form the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
