EVENT: Pitch for Detroit 2015
Pitch for Detroit is NEXTGen Detroit's annual sports tournament that brings the community together for a day of fundraising and friendly competition. Founded in 2010, “Pitch” has grown to host over 800 players and spectators who raise tens of thousands of dollars for various Detroit-based causes every year. This year, we are raising money for Bradby Park, a community park and recreation area in the North End neighborhood on Detroit’s east side. The neighborhood is home to 30,000 residents working to offer a safe space for their children to grow, but the park’s indoor center is closed and in disrepair, its sports fields are overgrown and there is no shaded area for summertime meals and activities. A revitalized park has the potential to be a great contributor to safer neighborhoods, healthier children and a more engaged community. We need your support to reach our ambitious fundraising goal of $30,000, which will enable Bradby Park to reopen their recreation building, renovate their sports fields and create a shaded outdoor area.
