GRAB three of your closest friends, name your team, fashion yourselves some costumes (optional) and start raising some money to fight cancer because it is with great excitement and joy that you are humbly invited to partake in the first Annual “Senor Tomas Presents… The Bocce Ball Masquerade Extravaganza!”
This will be held on April 16th in Long Beach, Ca, starting at 10 am. It will be the first of what will hopefully become an annual event, where we gather together to play some “competitive” Bocce Ball, reunite with old friends and family, raise money to help the fight against cancer and pay homage to one of the most joyful persons any of us have ever known, Tom Hohman.
Our overall goal is to raise $7,500 for The Thomas Hohman Cancer Research Scholarhip , but we hope that we can crush that goal and kick this first annual event off with a bang. Entrance fee to compete in the tournament is a per person donation of $35, which includes a free quality t-shirt commemorating this event!! T –shirts will also be available separately for those you who cannot attend for a $30 donation.
Remember, even if you can’t make it, any amount donated to this event is supremely appreciated as it will help to fund and EXPAND The Thomas Hohman Cancer Research Scholarship, which is dedicated to training the next generation of cancer scientists.
Through this tournament we will look to crown a team the victor of this grueling sport of walking around and tossing a ball at other balls… But, wait; there are other ways to be champion on this day.
We will also look to crown the team that can raise the most money above and beyond the entrance fee, as well as, crown the team with the best theme and costumes.
Teams can consist of up to four people, but don't be discouraged if you come alone. We will pair you up with some friendly faces. We also encourage teams to create a theme for their team and to show their spirit through the power of costume. This is totally optional, but Tommy was a huge fan of the hand-crafted costume, so if you have the creativity and drive to make it happen, you will certainly be joined in costume with all of the event's organizers... So start organizing your teams and get out there and raise some money for a great cause!
Regardless if you are able to attend or not, we hope that you will help contribute in our efforts to fight cancer in the memory of one of the most joyous persons any of us have ever known, Tom Hohman.
