Matt Lampson joined forces with D.C. United midfielder Chris Pontius on Saturday night to give two D.C. area families a night to remember.
Jack Keffer (4 years old) and Giovanni Deavers (8 years old), who are currently undergoing leukemia treatment were able to watch the match at RFK Stadium and then take their families down on the field for the final minutes of the match before meeting with both Pontius and Lampson post-match.
