The Melissa Ravas Memorial Fund

On Sunday March 21, we were informed of the sudden and tragic death of Arsenal parent, team manager and volunteer, Melissa Ravas.

As a club we send our thoughts, prayers, and support out to Melissa's husband Patrick and sons, Nathan and A.J.

The Ravas family are an enormous part of our club and this news is devastating on so many levels.

We cannot adequately express how overwhelmed with shock and sadness we feel at this time. We know that many of you feel the same.

The club has set up a memorial fund for the Ravas family. Should you feel compelled to help the Ravas family, we ask that you donate to the fund or share this page.

In addition, please keep Patrick, Nathan and A.J. in your thoughts and prayers.

Please know that we are here to support any players and families who are struggling with this heartbreaking news.

With a heavy heart,

Arsenal Football Club of Pittsburgh
