About this fundraiser:
Hi Aptos Little League Families,
Our Hit-a-Thon is on March 16th 2019, which is just around the corner! For families new to the Hit-a-Thon, this is a fundraiser where the players raise donations in the form of a flat amount or a dollar amount per foot that they hit the ball. There are prizes, both for individual player and for teams with the most donations. More information about format and schedule will follow.
The location will be Aptos Junior High School.
After team and individual pictures are taken each player will head to the dugout to get their name called and be given 5 hittable pitches. The farthest one gets measured, and the players with the top three distances from each division will be featured on the Aptos Little League website as Gold, Silver and Bronze winners.
You will be able to reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook, and Twitter, instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments, and handling checks. The ability to fundraise with the support of our player’s families and the local community provides vital funds for better and safer equipment for our young athletes and helps with critical field maintenance and improvements.
We are using an online system called 99Pledges to manage our fundraiser. You will now be able to reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook and Twitter, instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments and handling checks. Each player has a personal page where friends and relatives can go to donate/pledge for that player. We will still have a system to collect the cash and checks. Players will receive a pledge sheet to collect donation commitments.
So, please watch for an email from 99Pledges coming to you. It will come from firstname.lastname@example.org with the name Aptos Little League Hit-a-Thon. This email will give you necessary instructions and the link to your player's page.
See you all at the Hit-a-Thon!

- Cameras & Live Streaming
