Support the Cudas

It is that time of year again! Golf Tournament time! The 4th Annual RBI Cudas Golf Tournament is October 11th at Hidden Lakes Golf Club. Now more than ever the baseball team needs support. I am sure many of you have read about the challenges the city is facing at the Sports Complex.(I have some links at the end of this post if you would like to check it out.) 

So to put it quite simply, the teams using the sports complex need to be self sufficient. Baseball has always done a pretty good job, we maintain our own field,(with volunteers) we have purchased and secured our own storage at the baseball field, replaced water fountains in the dugouts (that did not work for two years) and now we are replacing the batting cages and bullpens with state of the art covered and lighted facilities. There is no facility in the area for our boys to hit or pitch, there was one in Port Orange that has closed and the next closest is in Ormond Beach.

So in addition to our normal operating expenses, baseballs, uniforms, equipment and scholarships we now have construction expenses. The proceeds from this golf tournament go directly to that effort as well as the scholarship fund. In three years the RBI Cudas have given nearly $10,000 in scholarships to NSBHS graduating seniors.

So, I am asking for your help. Do you golf? Can you or your business be a sponsor? Would you donate a silent auction item or a door prize? If you can help us please contact me at info@newsmyrnabeachmom.com or at info@rbicudas.org. You can also contact Robert Schwab at Hidden Lakes Golf Club at 386-314-1909.

This is a great way to showcase your business in a positive light and support the kids!

Thank you!

100 Happy Days

So I was reading a magazine today. I never really have time for that, but today I sat down and did it. It was kind of fun. In this magazine I found an article about the 100 Happy Days Challenge. So I thought to myself...I can do that. Then I read how 71% of the people who started did not finish. Hmmmm. I am going to give it a whirl starting tomorrow...so if you see random pics on my Facebook and Twitter accounts with the hashtag #100happydays, you know why. Join me if you like, it might be eye opening and maybe enjoyable!

Labor Day

School starting, Labor Day...the real start of the new year for many of us. The start of my favorite season...Fall. The crowds disappear, lines are gone, Publix is pleasant again on Saturday afternoon...

Labor Day until Thanksgiving is my very favorite time of year..

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend and we all have a wonderful Fall!
