What could be better than dodge ball for charity?
Dobbs Ferry High School baseball player David Muoser and his friends are inviting community members to join Dobbs Ferry faculty and students in a lively game of dodgeball a schoolyard game that many enjoyed or had shied away from as school kids.
But this team tussle isnt being played for bragging rights on who has the strongest arm of is the most fearless in the face of flying rubber balls. The June 10 event, to be held at the Dobbs Ferry High School gym beginning at 7 p.m., has been organized to raise funds that will go directly to the Japan Society, which is playing a large role in earthquake/tsunami relief efforts in Japan.
Organized by Dobbs Ferry seniors Muoser, Michael Margolis and Ben Schube, the event raised more than $1,600 last year.
Everyone in the community is welcome to come out and support the cause, Muoser said. Teams are made up of five players and we will be taking entries until Friday (June 10).
Muoser said that last years dodge ball game raised funds for relief efforts in Haiti.
Teams, which are comprised of DFHS students, faculty, and other community members,
are made up of five players each and the organizers are taking entrances from teams up until Friday. The entrance fee to play is $15 per player and includes a personalized t-shirt.
We expect over 25 teams to participate, Muoser said.
There will be a $3 suggested donation entrance fee at the door. If people are interested in donating or joining they can contact Mouser ( email@example.com , 914-674-4866) or Mike Margolis ( firstname.lastname@example.org , 914-450-2275).
