A soccer party took place Saturday night at the OC Mix in Costa Mesa and it was called, "The Slammers FC Celebration."
But for Walid and Ziad Khoury it was also known as a dream come true.
The brothers who are the directors of coaching for the elite soccer club, based in Newport Beach, had always wanted a night like Saturday when a reunion of sorts took place intertwined with pride of past accomplishments, acknowledgment of the present talent, and strong confidence for the future.
There were stories to be told and jokes to laugh about. It was a time to celebrate so much success.
"This was a great way to celebrate the kids we have put into college and for us to talk about the direction we're going for our future," Walid Khoury said. "We started in 1999. We had been with OC United and then we started Slammers. It's been a great ride ever since. We impacted a lot of lives. We started small. We started with four teams and got bigger. We have around 30 teams right now. But it's not about the number of teams that we have, it's about the quality that we have."
