2019 Kickball Kickoff – Katy Straalsund Memorial Foundation

Greetings from the Team at Katy Straalsund Memorial Foundation!

We are pleased to announce that we are already busily planning for our biggest fundraising event of the year.  We will be hosting the third annual “Let’s Kick Domestic Violence” Kickball Tournament at Horn Rapids Park in Richland Washington on August 23 and 24.   Based on your suggestions, this year we are tweaking a few things to make tournament and fundraiser even more fun and relevant. Our big feast and fundraiser portion of the event is being moved to the Thursday evening prior to the tournament.  This “Kickball Kickoff” will be hosted at White Bluffs on Thursday August 22 from 5 to 9 PM and will feature fabulous food, games, live music, and of course, White Bluffs Craft Beer. We are working on some great games and great prizes for you and a whole new chance auction format.  We are excited with the change as it will allow us to devote more time to inform you of what the foundation has accomplished thus far and where we are headed in the coming years. We hope to see you and your team there. Get to the Kick Off early and the first beer is on us!

The kickball tournament will be underway Friday evening and all day Saturday as in past years with a 16-team double elimination format.  We will also be having live music and keeping the beer garden open late on Friday and Saturday. At the tournament’s end, we will celebrate with pizza, beer, pop, and awards at the field.

We hope that you will be back again this year as sponsors, supporters, and volunteers.  We will be sending out this year’s initial flyers and poster within the month and encourage you to share with your friends, teammates, and associates.  As always we expect the event to fill up early so please don’t hesitate to send us a message and confirm your involvement this year. We would love to have you as a sponsor and volunteer.  As before our sponsorship levels are Gold $2500, Silver $1500, and Bronze $1000. Once again we will also be offering a single Platinum level at $4000 with Golf Cart valet, drink wristbands and a gourmet breakfast cooked by Team Katy.  Last year, this level went to Team Subaru. Who will it be this year?

Please confirm your involvement in this year’s event as soon as you can and get out there and start practicing!  This year Team Katy wants our Trophy back and we are getting serious!
