The San Diego Chapter of After-School All-Stars presents the fifth annual Party Like an All-Star Dodgeball Tournament on Friday, June 8, at 6pm. The charity invites local businesses and the community to form teams, dress in costume, and play dodgeball at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. Proceeds from the annual tournament benefit San Diego After-School All-Stars to help provide adequate after-school programming for underprivileged youth.
Community members and local businesses are encouraged to round up their all-star teams and join the competition to vie for this year’s championship title. Each team is judged on the creativity of their name, costume theme, and overall dodgeball performance. As players dip, duck, dive, and dodge, glory will be given to only one all-star champion team who will walk away with $500 in prizes.
“The Party Like an All-Star dodgeball tournament is one of the most entertaining, anticipated events of the year, both for After School All-Stars and supporters who play ball in outrageous costumes. Plus, it’s all for a wonderful cause for our local youth,” says Tyree Dillingham, executive director of San Diego After-School All-Stars. “The dodgeball tournament helps to awareness about the importance of quality after-school programs in San Diego in a fun atmosphere.”
General admission tickets are available for $20, and include admission, dinner, fand fun — all for a good cause. VIP tickets are also available for $125 for access to the VIP reception. Team pricing starts at $350 for a five-person team; $750 for access to the VIP reception.
After-School All-Stars offers students opportunities that help them succeed in all areas of their life through academic assistance, independent learning, enrichment activities and sports. Students will showcase their talents at the opening ceremony of this year’s dodgeball tournament performance. (619/223-3916, www.sdafterschoolallstars.org)
