Please Support Our Little League Team!
Eastlake Little League is located in Sammamish, Washington. Its 12u All-Star baseball team just won its first game of the Little League World Series by defeating Texas 8-4! The boys play again Sunday against a good team from Connecticut. The reality is that as the boys continue to play, their parents continue to spend lots of money to support them. We believe the average family will spend a minimum of $3000- $5000 during the state, regional and World Series tournaments. And while all the parents realize that covering expenses related to a baseball game is not the same as covering the costs of medical care or education, they still have the unplanned burden of $1000s in expenses if they wish to watch their kids play. Please consider donating a few dollars to support those parents who need it so they can enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Many, many thanks to those of you who have donated so much time and money to support the boys. Their parents feel an overwhelming sense of community pride and support and we all thank you very much.
Important Note: You are not donating to the Eastlake Little League organization. Your donations will not be tax deductible. They will not be managed by the non-profit Eastlake Little League organization which sponsors our team. They will be managed directly by the parents of the team to offset their expenses.
And while money cannot buy this experience, it can absolutely help cover the operating expenses! Because of the generosity of 374 people, and 100s of others who were part of donation groups, we dramatically exceeded our fund raising goals. Most of our families will exceed the $10k operating expense estimate, and many will come close to $20K! The funds you have donated will help these people put a dent in those bills.
You'll undoubtedly see the boys in places like Mariners' and Seahawks' games, local/Sammamish activities and online, and when you do, please continue to know that we are humbled and proud to have represented our community, state, and region in the greatest Little League event in the world! Go, Eastlake!
