And speaking of Gorilla FC Charity Partner Program,
we are 17% of our 2013 goal!
We ask for each member to donate $5-$10 that GFC uses to purchase tickets which we donate to our charity partners. This year we supported 17 different charities with tickets and a prize package, which they either use for clients, auction to raise funds or have a staff reward. Please help us reach our goal by donating whatever you can! We want to support more charities! You can donate here: http://www.crowdrise.com/gorillafccharitypartners
Every year, GFC members run for Sounders FC Alliance Council.
The council works hard to represent supporters and fans in meeting with the Sounders front office to discuss issues of importance to us all as Sounders fans. There are numerous issues that directly affect Gorilla FC, so it’s important we use our votes to get GFC on council.
It takes 25 votes from other Sounders season ticket holders to get on council. You can vote at: https://eballot4.votenet.com/seattlesoccer/login.cfm by entering your email and account number on any computer or device (like Civ’s Ipad). You can get your account number from your Sounders ticket rep if needed.
Our current GFC endorsement is Jeff Randle. Please vote for him.
Want to be on Sounders Alliance Council and represent Gorilla FC in making our club the best club around?
Join the democratic process by being on the Gorilla FC Ballot and get 25 votes to qualify. Being on Alliance Council has an expectation of attending one meeting a month with fellow council members. If you want to run for Alliance Council with GFC’s support, email firstname.lastname@example.org
and state why you want to be on council.
Must be a paid 2012 member to be on the platform

Rain City Pariah
For the first time ever, Gorilla FC has announced an addition our family. Rain City Pariah Football Collective (RCP) is a Seattle Sounders FC Supporters Collective and Gorilla FC subgroup dedicated to the Arts. The mission of Rain City Pariah is twofold. First, it is to celebrate the rich history of the Arts in Seattle by creating a subgroup of GFC that both follows the credo and code of GFC and incorporates those from the Arts communities (or fans of the Arts communities) into GFC. Second, RCP will seek to support the local Arts Organizations, especially those that provide arts opportunities for children. For more information visit www.facebook.com/raincitypariah or to pre-order a membership visit www.raincitypariah.com.
