The first 200 donors will receive a player card signed by Galaxy defender Omar González while all donors will be given a voucher valid for $5 off the gate price of a ticket for the all-important showdown with Real Salt Lake at The Home Depot Center on October 1. Additionally, every donor will be entered into a drawing to receive an adidas LA Galaxy soccer ball signed by members of the 2011 team.
