2nd Annual Dodgeball Tournament

Posted on: July 15th, 2013 by Gretchen Allred

Thanks so much everyone that came out to the Andy’s Outreach Dodgeball Tournament Monday! We had 25 teams from E-town, Lou2, Lou1, Shively, Aspen Creek, Fort Wright, Ashland and Lexington. We also had 4 teams from the Support Center and 6 MIT Teams from Legendary Learning.

We were able to raise $1094 for the Andy’s Outreach Assistance Fund! Thank you to every store that was able to bring a team and help us with the event. We will absolutely do this again next year, hopefully bigger and better!

Of course there could be just one winner. It was EXTREMELY competitive this year, but the undefeated Aspen Creek Beasts took home the trophies, bragging rights and cash by beating the Fab Five from Lou2 in the finals. They were also kind enough to donate a portion of their winnings back to Andy’s Outreach.

Thanks again for being so Legendary!
