Day of Champions Festival and Line Drives for Lights Fundraiser - Success!

A big thank you to the mastermind behind this great event - Gene Murray. Northside also thanks the countless board members and volunteers who worked before, during, and after the event to ensure a great day for everyone!

Thank you to all players and families who participated in the "Line Drives for Lights" Fundraiser. We are happy to announce that we exceeded our goal!! Our players raised an amazing $16,638. Their efforts coupled with the previously announced $10,000 gift by a generous Northside Family has us over $25,000. This is an important milestone as we move into the next phase of fundraising for our Lights Project.

There were some extraordinary individual and team performances. Please click here to see a detailed list of the top fundraisers and raffle winners.  We will be sending out gift cards/certificates to the winners in the next couple of days. For players who selected prizes on Sunday, the RGA order will be placed this week and we will inform you when your order is ready for pick-up.
