Ohio 529 Celebrates FC Cincinnati College Savings Goal Winners

FC Cincinnati and Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, teamed up to help fans of the Futbol Club and college savings score for their higher education goals.

One lucky FC Cincinnati fan received the grand prize of a $10,000 college savings award to open to a CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 account. The winner, Katarina Wicher, is planning to use the college savings award to pay for her graduate studies of sport psychology and rehabilitation at Pennsylvania Western University, California (PennWest California).

Katarina, her parents, Lisa and Marc, and friend, Malia Ferry joined Ohio’s 529 Plan and FC Cincinnati for the award presentation at the resounding victory over the San Jose Quakes on Saturday, Sept. 10. The second-place winner, Michael DeCock, and third-place winner, Erin Sunderman, won FC Cincinnati prize packages.
