WEST CALDWELL, NJ - The James Caldwell High School (JCHS) athletic department in West Caldwell, will sponsor the fourth annual Colonel John McHugh Memorial Soccer Saturday on Sept. 13, beginning at 9:00 a.m.

This month, the department will host two separate fundraisers spearheaded by several members of the boys’ and girls’ soccer programs to benefit the soccer teams and the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project strives to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members; help injured service members aid and assist each other; and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

The fundraisers include an apparel sale with choice of logos and a dining event at Chipotle Mexican Grill in West Caldwell. The first event features official Under Armour Gear, which will be available for purchase via an online web store at http://www.bsnsports.com/my-team-shop.
