This year's committee for East Hampton High School Project Graduation 2009 has been working hard to raise funds to provide a safe, alcohol-free evening that is also great fun for high school seniors who will be enjoying their last night together as the Class of 2009. A major XBox video game tournament will be taking place, projected onto a giant inflatable movie screen as crowds watch the excitement. This year, more than ever, community support is needed in order to make Project Graduation an event seniors won't want to miss.
Project Graduation brings seniors to a surprise location for an overnight celebration where they are treated to lots of food, games and prizes - thus keeping them sober and off the roads. Coming up this Saturday, March 7 is the much-anticipated fundraiser for Project Graduation, the Madden 09 XBOX 360 Tournament."
This tournament will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the East Hampton Middle School, 19 Childs Road. Tournament registration is from 10 to 11 a.m., with an entry fee of $40, which includes the day's raffles.
There will be cash prizes of $250 and $500 for the top two winners, as well as food and beverages for sale and above all, lots of fun.
The championship game will be played on a giant inflatable screen.
In addition to helping raise funds by taking part in this tournament, community members - businesses, civic groups and generous individuals - can still help make this event a success with much needed contributions.
The sponsorship levels are:
-Bronze Donation: $250
-Silver Donation: $500
-Gold Donation: $1,000
-Platinum Donation: $2,000 or more
... but any size donation is gratefully accepted.
All sponsors will be advertised on a 12' inflatable screen throughout the day, with Gold and Platinum sponsors advertised on 60 x72 banners.
