Blue Iguana restaurant and Mālama football club help local youth football team


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Mexican restaurant Blue Iguana in Salt Lake City and Mālama Football Club in Hawaii recently helped a local youth football team.

Mālama Football Club is a non-profit youth football and leadership academy with the goal of “teaching young people from all walks of life that they can do anything” through football.

Recently, Mālama FC owner Chuck Steele got the idea to sponsor a team in the state of Utah. After researching companies that represented the values ​​of the nonprofit, Steele reached out to Blue Iguana owner Kris Cappaert to see if she would be interested in sponsoring a team at Northwest Middle School in Rose Park, in. Utah.

Cappaert immediately engaged in sponsoring “a few” players.

Shortly thereafter, Steele received the donation from Blue Iguana who supported the entire 12-member squad rather than just “a few” Northwest Middle School players.

“It’s not always about winning or scoring the most goals, it’s really about being unified,” Mālama Football Club said of their mission. “It’s about gaining self-esteem, being optimistic, having confidence in sportsmanship, taking responsibility, learning to lead and expressing creativity. Show Aloha and friendship.
