Are you ready for some kickball?! This second-annual tournament will be the busiest place in town on Saturday, August 20. With three fields of competition, food and drinks available for purchase, and an entire fun zone for kids, you can bring the whole family. Come out and enjoy food provided by Papa John's Pizza, Mason Dixon Saloon, and more! Plus, a jungle gym and bounce houses will make up the fun zone! 10 teams took on the challenge last year, but due to increased interest this year, the total number of teams will be limited at 24. You are limited to 10-14 people per team, but you MUST have four women on your squad. The cost is $200 per team, and each team can also order custom team shirts for only $10 each through Envision Tees. Remember, the winning team takes temporary possession of the SEVEN foot tall Traveling Trophy and gains bragging rights for a year!
This event benefits more than just your ego though, as proceeds benefit three different local charities: The Dubuque/Jackson Co Habitat for Humanity, Cedar Valley Friends of the Family, and the Dubuque Circles Initiative. These three charities are working together to help families through the process of leaving temporary housing, moving into stable housing, learning financial literacy, gaining economic stability, and ultimately owning a home of their own. The goal is to raise $10,000 more than last year.
Spots for the tournament are filling up quickly, so get registered today! Register here. And there is still time to partner as a sponsor, vendor, volunteer, or to donate. Please e-mail us for more details on any opportunity, and together we will Kick Poverty in the Tri-States!
