As one of the five marquee events in the High Fives Foundation calendar draws near; excitement builds for this celebrated day of bonding over the bocce courts.
Register today for the Sunday, September 14th event in person at the CR Johnson Healing Center, online at www.bocce.highfivesfoundation.org or by calling (530) 587-4453. The cost to participate is $100 per two-person team. Space is limited to the first forty teams to register. Teams will compete for amazing prizes, including prizes for “Best Costume,” and bragging rights while raising funds for winter action sports athletes that have suffered a life-altering injury.
“As the summer rolls to a close, the momentum for the 6th Annual High Fives Bocce Tournament grows.” Says Katy Jones – Director of the Wine Tasting Room at the Truckee River Winery “We love the energy and enthusiasm that is a major part of the Annual High Fives Bocce Tournament. With a great double-elimination tournament format, awesome prizing and delicious food and beverages, this all day event brings ear-to-ear grins on all that attend!”
The Annual Bocce Tournament truly is the “can’t miss” event of the summer, and is a great example of High Fives’ approach to always keeping the “fun” in fundraising. The event draws competitors from all over, including Adam Mahoney of Boston who maintains, “As long as the High Fives Bocce Tournament continues to be an event I will continue to fly across the country for it. I will admit, my performance was sub-par at best last year, and I have been anxious all year to redeem myself.”
