Upcoming WAA fundraiser

On September 10th, the WAA (Waxhaw Athletic Association) is having a big fundraiser at Nesbit Park in Waxhaw to raise money for new fields and lights if I'm not mistaken. They're dubbing it as: "Light the Night -- the First Annual Bar-B-Que Fundraiser & Camp-Out!"

The daytime festivities start at 10am and run until 3pm and include lots of activities for kids and parents. For the kids, there's a soccer kick-off, basketball shoot out, home run derby (softball and baseball), wiffle ball tournament, cheer competition and game, and a fastest pitch contest. And even if your kids don't participate in any of these, a good time can still be had.

Food (including Butch Kelly's BBQ) will be available (pre-ordering is cheaper FWIW); live music will be played. First aid and raffle tickets will be available respectively for the worriers and the lucky.

And for those of you who enjoy the outdoors, you can come back at 6pm to camp out for $15 to enjoy a movie (TBD?) popcorn, and a bonfire for roasting marshmallows.

It should be a good time for those of you who'd like to support local athletics without leaving the friendly confines of Waxhaw.

UPDATE: Here's the flyer:
