Willye B. White Park Advisory Council Fundraising

Willye B. White Park Advisory Council Fundraising

Youth between ages 13-15 are participating in 'Inner City Hoops' basketball tournaments every Friday at the Willye B. White Park Community Center. The first event was Friday, March 12th and will be held every Friday, with the last event being April 23rd. The event begins at 5:00 pm and lasts until approximately 7:30 pm.

Throughout the duration of the 'Inner City Hoops' tournament, the Park Advisory Council will be operating a concession stand, selling hot dogs, chips, cookies, bottled water to raise funds. All proceeds will go to help fund after school programs and summer camp for underprivileged children. Stop in, catch a tournament, and enjoy a hot dog or just donate to the kids fund.

Through it's fund raising efforts the Council offered 80% discount stocking stuffers for the Winter Holiday so kids could attend park activities while on break. The 80% discount was carried into the winter Park District program session and will continue with the spring program session. Program sessions are 10 weeks and the Spring 2010 session runs from March 29th thru June 6th.
