Babar and Haris were both involved in the soccer community in Plainfield-Babar as coach for nearly 18 years, and Haris as a player for 15 years. It was only fitting that a memorial in their honor should center around soccer! The first Babar and Haris Suleman Memorial Soccer Festival took place on July 25th. The event not only brought the community together to commemorate the lives of the father-and-son duo but also raised funds for the Haris Suleman Memorial Scholarship at Plainfield High School. The event, sponsored by Tendercare Home Health Services, Inc, Chicago's Pizza in Plainfield, and IU West Hospital, consisted of 15 teams, and over 200 spectators! Vendors including Wyliepalooza, Sully's Hot Dogs, Coffee & Donuts and Chick-fil-A were in attendance. The event raised over $3,000!
