2021 Hit-A-Thon!

Apr 28, 2021 12:21 PM

Belmont Redwood Shores Little League will be holding its Annual Hit-A-Thon fundraising event. This is the league's largest fundraiser and helps fund important items like equipment, uniforms, training and field maintenance for over 400 youth baseball players in our community.

We have a big goal this year!!! This is due to the fact that last year the season was shutdown (due to the pandemic) before we could have our Hit-A-Thon. However many of our costs still remained as they were allocated prior to the shutdown. These costs were related to fields, player clinics, jerseys and other equipment.
 
Also, we are in desperate need of improving our main field at Belmont Sports Complex (BSC). We have a great ballpark in Marina Field at the BSC. It is a beautiful space and we are lucky to have it. However, it’s been 30 years since the Marina Field first opened, and now it is in desperate need of a hefty make-over. It is THE ballpark that all of our players look forward to playing on.
 
Please help us reach our goal so that our young players have a safe place to play ball for years to come. With 100% player participation in meeting our goal, we can make this dream come true!!
 
Stay tuned for information about the Hit-A-Thon on-field event and for prizes for the players/families that help us raise the most funds. We will be looking to reward our top weekly, monthly, and overall fundraisers.

ONLINE FUNDRAISING:

To make collecting pledges easier than ever we have enlisted the services of 99Pledges for another year. Each player will have their own personal pledge page. You will receive an email invitation to your page or you may visit their website and search for your player as the date draws near.

By using 99Pledges this allows you to reach out to friends and family across the world via email and social media. This site also allows your sponsors to pledge via credit card using a secure site.

WHAT TO DO NEXT:

To make your fundraising campaign as successful as possible:

  1. Send emails to at least 10 of your family members and friends asking them to sponsor your player.
  2. Make your own donation.
  3. Once you receive your link from 99Pledges, post your link to social media (adding pictures is helpful).

HOW IT WORKS:

After pictures, please proceed directly to the Marina Field at Belmont Sports Complex and check in at the table. T-Ball, Farm and AA will hit off a tee and AAA and Majors will hit from the machine. Each player will receive 3 hits (for AAA and Majors they will get 5 pitches). The hits will be recorded and entered on to the player’s pledge page.  

PRIZES:

There will be a variety of prizes for team participation along with individual participation. More information to come.

LEAGUE GOAL:

Our goal for 2021 is to raise over $100,000 with 100% team participation!
