EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2016
Friends and family,
We are writing to you regarding a fundraiser that will be taking place in Sheboygan County on July 29th, 2017. The event is a BASEketball Tournament, a tribute to the 1998 movie of the same name. Contestants will compete throughout the day in a combination of basketball and baseball, while enjoying food and beverages.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to water.org, a worldwide philanthropic organization. Water.org is committed to the notion that access to clean drinking water is a basic human right all people deserve. The organization builds potable water systems to provide clean water to communities, and improving sanitation. The effect of their work spreads far beyond drinking water. By providing easy access to this basic necessity childhood education improves, agriculture improves, and communities emerge from poverty.
On July 29th, 2017 we drink, so they CAN drink. The BASEketball Charity Tournament was established four years ago. In that short time, hundreds of people have participated and we’ve raised $47,987 for water.org. This year we’re challenging the community to raise $20,000 in a single day. To help us reach this goal, tournament organizers are challenging each competing team to raise pledges; both creating community advocacy for the charity, and raising vital funds that will directly impact lives.
This year participating teams will compete to see who can get the most donations. The winning team will receive a bar crawl with transportation. If you'd like to support a specific team, just make your donation through a member of that team's page, which is associated with our fundraising site.
We have launched this site to reach out to people like you, and make you aware of the event and our efforts to raise the most amount of money possible. If you believe in the cause we are supporting and want to be a part of this years success, please consider making a donation.
