2. TEN MORE DOLLARS TIL WE HIT $100:
We are proud to announce that Advocates for Children has already raised $89.92 and has earned the #1 seed in the upcoming softball tournament. We don't plan on stopping there, however. As the founding group of this tournament, Advocates is looking to make a strong statement to the other programs by raising $100 for charity from their student body ($200 total including matching funds). As you all know, we are representing Project Children, and hopefully our Advocates team will garner first, second, or third in the tournament and be able to get a contribution to them. So far, fifteen players are signed up to play on the Advocates team, with a few spots left if anyone is interested. Donations can be made in class, dropped off in the Advocates Office, or given to Kevin. If you are interested in playing or helping Kevin in running the tournament that day (Saturday, April 25 from 10 am - 6 pm), please contact him (x49672, firstname.lastname@example.org).
