Welcome to the Not in the Face Dodgeball Tournament, the philanthropy benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters
Not in the Face Dodgeball is a fun event where teams of five compete while raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters. 100% of the proceeds raised from this even will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
quick description of where the relief funds go
“For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.”
There are two brackets, a Women’s and a Men’s Bracket, where teams will compete in a head to head single elimination fashion. The event will be held April 15th at the UConn Rec Field House. Teams are suggested to arrive by 9:00am, with the tournament starting right at 9:30am.
There will be free Dunkin Donuts in the morning, music, free giveaways from campus sponsors such as 5-hour energy, LL-Bean, Powercrunch, Blaze Pizza, Gansett Wraps, and others. Also, UCTV will be covering the event so you can even make it on TV!
