Soccer star stud David Beckham took part in an all out celebrity soccer match to help those affected by the wildfires in Southern California. The event took place yesterday at the Home Depot Center. According to the Associated Press:
Beckham and the Galaxy will take on “Hollywood United FC” – a team comprised of actors Anthony LaPaglia, Jimmy Jean-Louis and Costas Mandylor, as well as several former World Cup players – in a friendly fund-raiser match to benefit those affected by the wildfires in Southern California.
Evidently Beck’s appearance helped to raise over $100,000. “It’s nice to be in that position and play out there and raise a certain amount of money,” David said.
