Crown Town Wiffle Weekend

 

 Crown Town Wiffle Weekend

Presented by Pro Athlete, Inc.

July 19-21, 2018

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

 

In 2017, we launched our inaugural “Wiffle Ball at the Hollow” fundraising event. Thanks to our awesome players and sponsors, the sold-out “Wiffle Ball at the Hollow” netted nearly $75,000 for “C” You In The Major Leagues and other charities based in the greater Kansas City area!

In an effort to make a bigger impact on Kansas City, and with the incredible feedback from our players and sponsors, in 2018 we’re adding a two-night tournament at Kansas City’s newest baseball gem, the MLB Urban Youth Academy in the 18th & Vine District. The tournament is open to teams of nine to 16 players, men or women or co-ed, of all skill levels, from 14 years old and up. With this addition of “Wiffle Ball at the Academy,” we’re now calling this three-day event Crown Town Wiffle Weekend!

The fun and whimsy of last year’s event will remain on Saturday, but on July 19 & 20, the UYA will be transformed into Wiffle Utopia. Of course, with the addition of the tournament and the new name, we felt we needed an Honorary Commissioner for Crown Town Wiffle. For the inaugural year of this grand celebration of all things Wiffle, there was only one choice for this role: Hall of Famer George Brett! George is scheduled to take part in the game at “The Hollow” on Saturday. 

The cost for the tournament is $200 per player or $2,500 for groups of more than 13 players. Each team will have a fundraising page on this site, with the minimum fee not being due until July 16. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WIFFLE BALL AT THE ACADEMY (THE TOURNAMENT), CLICK HERE.

The cost for Wiffle Ball at the Hollow is $3,000 per player. As with the tournament, players can create a fundraising page on this site, with the minimum fee not being due until July 16. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WIFFLE BALL AT THE HOLLOW (THE SATURDAY GAME), CLICK HERE.

 

Volunteers Needed

Looking for a way to get involved in Crown Town Wiffle, but you don’t want to play? We are looking for about 50 volunteers each night of the tournament, July 19 & 20, with several different positions available. You can get more details and sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090449acae2ea4fb6-volunteer.

 

Online Auction

Our 2017 auction, which was open to everyone, raised exactly $25,000! This year’s auction, includes signed Royals memorabilia, including a one-of-a-kind bat display signed by George Brett, Bo Jackson, Mike Sweeney, Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez, and one-of a kind experiences, including a behind-the-scenes “tour” with the voice of the Chiefs Mitch Holthus. The auction is open now! It’s set to close on Saturday, July 21, at noon CDT. To see the items and bid, CLICK HERE.

Sponsorships are available with packages that include everything from a team in the tournament to a spot in the Saturday game to only in-stadium signage. If you’d like more information, please visit our sponsorship page here, or contact Matt Fulks at Wiffle@CYouInTheMajorLeagues.org.
