BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL WOMENS BASEBALL CENTER INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2016
The International Women's Baseball Center is dedicated to preserving the past, celebrating the present and supporting the future of women's baseball.
We are looking to raise funds to build an training and development center with a museum and a traveling exhibit. The funds raised here will be used exclusively for one of these two purposes, our general fund has a separate fundraising stream. One of the current sites we are evaluating is in Rockford Illinois. It directly across the street from Beyer Stadium, the home of the original Rockford Peaches who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League from 1943-1954. We have also been offered space at the Field of Dreams in Dwyersville, Iowa.
We need to raise $15,000 to take title of the Rockford Property, another $20,000 to renovate one of the existing buildings and $200,000 raze the other on the property. We would like to begin by raising $35,000 to take title of the property, hire a lawyer, a contractor and an architect for a building assessment/evaluation and to draw up plans for the renovation. This will also include remedying any existing code violations as the building has been vacant for sometime, and securing full insurance coverage.
Please help us a create a central home open to one and all... past, present and future generations of women who play, manage, coach, umpire, support and who in any way help make baseball our National Pastime. Step Up To The Sport by contributing to this epic project today!
