Even though the Seattle Sounders got knocked out of the running, the MLS Cup still takes place here in Seattle on Sunday, November 22, at Qwest Field. Real Salt Lake will battle the LA Galaxy and at the end up the day one of the teams will be declared champion.

To celebrate the upcoming game, MLS stars will join with Home Depot associates (Home Depot is an MLS sponsor), MLS W.O.R.K.S, the league’s community outreach arm, the Seattle Public Schools, and local volunteers join with KaBOOM, an organization whose goals is to bring playgrounds to kids, in building a brand new playground in one day.

From 9 am to 2:30 pm, volunteers will work hard to build a playground on the grounds of Van Asselt Elementary School at 8311 Beacon Ave. As soon as the playground’s built, they’re having an opening ceremony which is currently planned for 2pm. (Subject to change).
