A Visit from Michél Mazingu-Dinzey
We were honored to have a visit from top 100-year FC St. Pauli player, Michél Mazingu-Dinzey in November. We especially appreciate his support of the local NYC soccer program, Uptown Soccer Academy. The star international player also donated clothing to the children of the victims of Hurricane Sandy and outfitted the ERP soccer team in true St. Pauli style!
Viva con Agua Charity Party
The fourth-annual Viva con Agua charity match-viewing/concert/party on December 1st was a smashing success. We raised over $4,000 for Viva con Agua and had a great time. THANK YOU to everyone who came out and supported the Bhoys in Brown and Viva con Agua's efforts to promote clean drinking water in developing nations.
Here is a nice article about the event on the always fresh The Beat of St. Pauli.
Big hugs and a special thank you to AIDA Kreuzfahrten for donating the amazing Grand Prize luxury cruise from Hamburg to New York City via Norway, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, and Canada. Thank you for your support of Viva con Agua and The East River Pirates!

Special thanks to offical FC St. Pauli equipment provider Do You Football for donating awesome gear for the silent auction. Mad props to visual artist Elmar Lause for donating "United States of St. Pauli" painting and creating the kick-ass East River Pirates graffiti mural at East River Bar.
