Vienna, Virginia (Vocus) July 12, 2010
The 2 Young Foundation (2YF) is proud to announce the date for the 15th annual Northern Virginia Wiffle® World Series (NVWWS) taking place on Saturday, August 7th at Waters Field in Vienna. The day will be filled with Wiffle® ball, food, fun, games, prizes, and even a Kids’ Wiffle® ball tournament. All money raised will go towards the Foundation’s unwavering mission to find a cure for brain cancer – contributing all funds to furthering research and also providing support for the families and patients affected by the disease.
The NVWWS will be an all-day event on August 7 that will kick-off at 8:30am with team check-in, and the first pitch will be thrown at 10am. While the adults are at bat, children can experience “Kids World” where they can play games, win prizes or go for a jump in the giant moon bounce! The Kids’ Wiffle® ball tournament will be for children aged seven and younger. The adult championship game will be held at 7pm, followed by an awards ceremony - complete with trophies for the winners.
NVWWS player registration has already begun and interested players can sign up on the 2YF website (http://www.2YF.org). The site also provides information about corporate and team sponsorships, numerous volunteer opportunities, how to obtain spectator tickets, and much more!
2YF has sponsored the Wiffle® World Series for the past six years, and with remarkable generosity and outstanding support it has contributed over $250,000 in support of its cause.
