BENEFITING: Let's Get Ready
EVENT DATE: Aug 04, 2015
Let's Get Ready has received an amazing opportunity to fundraise for the BFIT site! Positive Tracks, a foundation based in New Hampshire, has offered to DOUBLE the amount of money raised by students age 23 and under, as long as it's through a sporting event. This is where you come in! LGR is hosting a Bocce Tournament to help raise money for your site!
How it works: On August 4, a "referee" will come to your site to host the tournament. During Break Time, the site will be split up into two teams to compete for prizes!
What we need from you: Spread the word! Your coaches, Site Directors and students can help us to reach our goal -- ask parents, your friends, your family to donate, and let them know that all of their donations will be worth DOUBLE, as Positive Tracks will match all funds raised! All funds raised will sponsor students to participate in Let's Get Ready's SAT prep program. The sites that reach their fundraising goals will receive an Ice Cream Sundae Bar from Ben and Jerry's at their Final Celebration. Top fundraisers from each site will receive an awesome gift card to a local attraction. Winning teams from the bocce game will receive LGR swag and an opportunity to vote for an MVP!
Everyone, regardless of what they do/do not fundraise, can participate in the bocce game during your site’s break time. For those who want to give back, remember that all money raised will directly support Let's Get Ready's programming, and WILL BE DOUBLED by Positive Tracks. So if you give $10, it becomes $20! We’re so excited to play bocce and give back to LGR at the same time!
