- 99 Pledges B.A.L HIT-A-THON Fundraiser.
THIS IS OUR ONLY PLAYER DRIVEN FUNDRAISER for the year and PLEDGE COLLECTION can be done from the comfort of your home office or your data phone! We will be sending information regarding the on-line pledge collection process, and Hit-A-Thon schedule to you in the next week. Individual participants & teams will have the opportunity to earn FANTASTIC prizes for their participation in this event!
Last year was our first ever Hit-A-Thon fundraiser and although we had less then 30% League Participation, WE RAISED OVER $10K. This year we are hoping to TRIPLE THAT! WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS FUNDRAISING EVENT! The B.A.L. is comprised of 47 teams, and 530 players this year. As our league continues to grow, so do our expenses associated to that growth.
We have made some amazing improvements over the last few years to include the Hickey Field Improvement Project, Concessions and Restroom improvements, Portable Mounds, Scoreboards, Sunscreen Field #2, and Bricked batter boxes to prevent rainouts to name just a few. Going forward the league is looking to expand practice fields at Heritage and Pine Creek as well as develop the land that was donated to the West of B.A.L. which will include a baseball/softball field and a tball/CP field. As you can see, your generous contributions to the B.A.L., along with those of our Corporate Sponsorship Partners are hard at work for both present, and future generations of Bennington youth! And let's not forget the army of parent volunteers, and local community members that provide the elbow grease to assist in making these projects happen!
We appreciate your efforts in advance in making this year's Opening Day Pancake Feed and 99 Pledges Hit-A-Thon Fundraiser a HUGE SUCCESS!
- Concessions will be open for lunch/beverage/snack service starting at 1p!
