Kicking off April 24th with over forty teams and five hundred fierce dodgeball competitors, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stoneham and Wakefield will host their sixth annual “Dodging for Dollars” dodgeball tournament fundraiser. Themed “Dodging through the Decades,” this year’s fundraiser will celebrate the organization’s fifty years of building great futures in a groovy, bodacious, fresh, kewl, and definitely lit way. With a goal of surpassing $50,000 in raised funds for the support of children and families that need it the most, “Dodging through the Decades” will feature a seven-event elimination series that pits fierce corporate and community competitors against one another to raise to raise funds by firing rubber balls at the opposition until a champion is crowned – all in the name of charity.
“Our dodgeball fundraiser is one of the biggest in New England, and certainly the most fun and exciting fundraising and team-building event of the year,” says Anthony Guardia, tournament Commissioner and Chief Development Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stoneham & Wakefield. “With so much to celebrate this year, ‘Dodging through the Decades’ is sure to play an instrumental role in the Clubs’ continued dedication to providing the innovative programs to members, families, and the community that we’ve pride ourselves on for the last five decades.”
