2015 UPCOMING EVENTS:
MAY 22-25: Baltimore-Washington Diamond Classic. This year we will proudly celebrate the 10th anniversary of our tournament, the Diamond Classic.
JUNE 7: Big Train Game–on Sunday, June 7th we will be a featured community organization at the Bethesda Big Train game. The Big Train is a wood bat summer league (similar to the Cape Cod League) for college players aspiring to play professionally. On selected nights the Big Train hosts community organizations–providing the organizations with both a fundraising and community outreach opportunity. Additional details will be provided in the coming weeks, but please pencil this date on your calendars and plan to join us at the ball park.
JULY 18: Bowie Baysox Women in Sports Night–we have been invited to again participate in the Bowie Baysox’ Women in Sports night. The event, which features a variety of women’s sports teams from the DC/Baltimore Metro area is highlighted each year by the attendance of several former players from the All American Girls Professional Baseball League. We have been honored each year to be a part of this event and to share the stage with these amazing ladies. Additional details will follow regarding the purchasing of tickets for this event.
2015 Fundraising Initiatives:
Amazon Smile: for those of you who shop on Amazon, we are registered with Amazon Smile–a fundraiser program offered to charitable organizations, Amazon will donate .5% of your eligible purchases to the league. Just go to http://www.smile.amazon.com and select the Eastern Womens Baseball Conference as your charity and use Amazon Smile to make all your Amazon purchases. Using Amazon Smile gives you access to the same Amazon products and prices as you have via the traditional site, but allows for us to receive a donation based on your total sales.
Please feel free to share this with your family, friends and co-workers–its a great way for us to raise money to help support the league.
Combined Federal Campaign: this year we will again be participating in the Capital Region’s Combined Federal Campaign. For those of you who are federal employees, or have family/friends who are–consider designating the EWBC as your CFC charity of choice. In addition to all the funds we receive as someone’s selected charity, we will also receive a percentage of the undesignated funds –the percentage we receive is in direct relation to the amount of named contributions we obtain, so please share this anyone you know who may be a federal employee–the more donations we receive directly, the greater percentage of undesignated funds we earn.
