Greyhound Baseball Club will be hosting it's 1st annual bowling fundraiser on Friday, January 29th. The fundraiser will be hosted by the 11u and 14u teams, with the 11u team leading this group effort. The evening is designed to bring parents, family and friends from both teams together for an evening of adult fun, while raising money for the upcoming season.

The 11u leadership team is still finalizing all the last minute details on the event, and will be reaching out to all families via email. We truly hope that all families will help in the preparation of the event, as well as recruit people to attend. The goal is for 200 people to attend the fundraiser.
