Leave your shoes at home or check them at the gate. It’s time for the annual Davis Legacy Soccer Barefoot on the Pitch adults-only fundraiser featuring live music, gourmet food trucks, cold beer, premium local wines, raffles, door prizes, games and a first-class silent auction.

The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Davis Legacy Soccer Center, just off Chiles Road at Road 105D in Davis. It is open to the public, and organizers expect more than 500 people to attend.

Tickets are $40 per person pre-event, $45 online and $50 at the door. Tickets may be purchased from any Davis Legacy soccer player or by going online to www.davislegacysoccer.org. Proceeds will benefit Davis Youth Soccer League, a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization, and will help fund needed lighting at the Davis Legacy soccer fields.

The meals will be dished up by some of the most popular gourmet food trucks in the Sacramento area, including Mama Kim’s, Wicked ‘Wich, California Love Truck and El Matador. The silent auction tables will feature San Francisco Giants and 49er tickets, golf, wine packages and items for youths.

Attendees will enjoy live music by the band, Total Recall, a ’90s alternative rock cover band.

California wineries — including Berryessa Gap, Vintage Wine Estates, Lange Twins and Sullivan Vineyards — will be among the vintners from the pouring glasses of their specialty wines.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available by contacting event chairman, Matt Bosco at 916-807-0862 or matt@axisjet.com. Existing sponsors at the $1,000 level and above include Grandeur Designs/Korifi Construction, State Farm Insurance — Dave Scheiber, Soccer ‘n’ Lifestyle, California IVF Fertility Center, Davis Dermatology, Mr. Pickles, Speedee Lube, Subway, PG&E and the Neurology and Neurosurgery Service at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.

Year-round metal sponsor signs at the Davis Legacy Center fields are also available. The soccer club fields are home to team games and tournaments and are visited by more than 54,000 people a year.
