Fullerton, CA (Vocus) November 5, 2010
In November, adults and children of all ages can enjoy a game of dodge ball while helping homeless youth get back on their feet and off the streets.
Outreach Communications will host its first ever dodge ball tournament—a fundraising event that will benefit the development and maintenance of programs and shelters for homeless youth. This center—headed by the non-profit organization STANDUP FOR KIDS—will provide a safe haven for at-risk children where visitors can rest, shower, do laundry and receive straightforward counseling and assistance to help them transition into the adult world and lead fulfilling, healthy and self-sufficient lives.
It will be held November 13, 2010 at Cal State Fullerton from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will be open to the public. The registration fee is five dollars per dodge ball player with 6 players per team. There will also be live performances and an opportunity giveaway. General admission will be five dollars. With the help of children and adults who love to play dodge ball, STANDUP FOR KIDS can meet this objective and continuously give at-risk youth hope for the future
