IAB Cricket Field Foundation Drive

Dear IAB Well-wishers,

You might have heard about a cricket field getting allocated to IAB by Erie County.  IAB thanks Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and his administration for making this possible.

Though the news is exciting, it brings with itself a lot of work, which needs to be done before the first ball is played.  The ground is a baseball field and major modifications will be needed to make it playable.  We have a multiyear plan to transform this into a playing arena that we all will be proud to be associated with. 

IAB intends to use this ground in a way that encourages involvement of entire family.  The field being set in the beautiful Ellicott Creek Park, we hope the weekend games will become a family affair.  Keeping that in mind we are working towards hosting games for Seniors (50+), Men, Women and Kids.  If you are interested in joining any of these games, kindly do let us know by dropping a line at iabexecom@googlegroups.com

We will need to raise close to $10K by end of June to successfully launch this multi-year project and inaugurate the ground in mid-July.  To kick start the fundraising, IAB is allocating $1000 towards this initiative and humbly requests generous donations from everyone to make this dream a reality.
