ALTON — Junior League of Greater Alton’s 2015 Provisional Members are “kicking in” to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Alton with a kickball tournament set for Saturday, Nov. 14.
The Turkey Ball, a double elimination tournament, will begin at 9 a.m. at Gordon Moore Park in Alton.
Teams must have 10-14 players, including at least two females. Players must be at least age 18. Registration, which is open through Nov. 6, is $250 per team, and includes at least two games, tournament T-shirts and goodie bags for players.
“This tournament is an amazing way to show our community support for a great cause,” said Sara Lawrence, chair for the 2015 Provisional Class. “Essentially, kickball is a kids’ game — so why not play a fun kids’ game to raise money for great kids?”
During the event, players and spectators will have the opportunity to participate in a 50/50 raffle.
Proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Alton.
“We’re excited that Junior League has selected the club as their charity for this event,” said Al Womack, the club’s executive director. “Times are tough for everyone, and the demand for our services continue to increase, so this funding will allow us to continue meet the demand.”
