A club at Stephens County High School is holding a kickball tournament this month to raise money for groups both in this community and elsewhere.
The first ever Stephens County High School Interact Kickball Tournament will be held Saturday, March 16 at the Rose Lane Recreation Department ball fields.
Interact Club Member Emma Frazier is the Committee Chair for the Tournament.
She said the club thought it would be something different to try as a fundraiser.
“I think it is new,” said Frazier. “Nobody has ever done a kickball tournament before.”
The tournament starts at 10 a.m. on March 16.
A team must consist of 11 people and team registration is $110, or $10 per player. Students in the ninth grade or above playing for a school club or team are $55, or $5 per player. Teams should register at the Toccoa-Stephens County YMCA on Big A Road in Toccoa.
Interact is a service club at Stephens County High School sponsored by the Rotary Club.
Frazier said that funds raised through the kickball tournament will go towards two different groups.
“We picked Nets for Life, it helps fight malaria in other counties,” said Frazier. “We are also doing it for the local YMCA.”
Besides Nets for Life and the Toccoa-Stephens County YMCA, Interact will also have other activities going on to raise money for a Shelterbox. A Shelterbox is a disaster relief product that is used around the world for victims of natural and manmade disasters.
