San Francisco Giants Little League Day/SLVLL Fundraiser
May 8, 2016 – 01:05 PM
For all you SF Giants fans out there, there is an opportunity to go to a game with other SLVLL families, on Sunday, May 8 (Mother's Day), when the Giants will face off against the Colorado Rockies. ** UPDATE ** - HERE is the schedule for the day. Even though the game starts at 1:05, there are special activities for Little Leaguers starting at 9 AM.
SLVLL has purchased a block of tickets for this game! Tickets are $40 each, and a portion of the ticket price goes to SLVLL, so in addition to seeing the World Series Champion SF Giants, you are helping our local league at the same time - WIN/WIN!
While supplies last, tickets will be available for sale at the Snack Shack at the Majors/Pony field any time SLVLL has games scheduled on either of those fields. Saturday will generally be the best day, with games throughout the day. Majors games are generally Monday and Wednesday evenings, AAA games Tuesday or Thursday. Make sure to check the schedule first!
*** NEWS FLASH - We CAN accept credit cards in payment! ***

Why are we having a Hit-a-thon Fundraiser?
From our "FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)"
Q. How much does it cost to play in SLVLL?
A. The registration fees have been held at $130 PER PLAYER since 2010 (with a slight rise in price after a certain date, BUT with sibling discount for families with more than one player).
Q. What does it cost the league to run, per player?
A. SLVLL did a study from 2011-2013 and found that it annually costs about $200 per player to run our league. This amount includes many small items but the big ones are field use, uniforms, photography, equipment, and umpires. Keep in mind that some players participate under partial or full scholarship. SLVLL makes up the difference between the registration fees and actual costs through fundraisers, the snack shack, and team/player sponsorships.
Other local Little Leagues have found a Hit-a-thon to be a relatively easy way to include ALL players in a fundraising effort. There are no sales involved, no product to deliver later, just a fun activity where Little Leaguers seek pledges/donations and get to swing a bat at the ball AND help the local league at the same time! From the newest T-ballers to the 12-year old Majors players, ALL can participate! Each player can utilize the Hit-a-thon site to seek support from family and friends near and far! Every player registered for the Spring 2016 season has his/her own special page on the Hit-a-thon website, which can be customized with photos of your choosing, special messages, etc. You can share the link to your player's page via email and social media.
The actual Hit-a-thon will take place on Sunday, April 24th, at the Majors field at SLV High School, starting at 9 AM (more detailed schedule above). If EVERY player in our league gets only six $10 pledges, we will exceed our goal of $15,000!
Within each division (T-ball, A, AA, AAA, and Majors), there will be prizes for the greatest distances AND for the top fund-raiser. For the player who raises the most money overall in pledges and donations, there will be a special prize.
If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser, please contact Nick Purtscher at firstname.lastname@example.org (please put Hit-A-Thon in the subject line).
