Join us again this year for the greatest FUNdraiser you can think of! Imagine the glory of gym class dodgeball, except with no kids and more beer. Grab a team of 10 of your friends (or family, or co-workers, or gym class rivals from back in the day), and make sure to bring your own cheerleading team! Tickets are $30/person or $300 for a team of 10, which includes unlimited beer, food, and plenty of entertainment. If you'd like to partake in the festivities but don't fancy yourself a dodgeballer, you're welcome to join in on the fun for $15 (which includes unlimited food and beer).
This tournament is located at St. Mary's High School and will feature a bracket. Games will begin at 6:30 pm so that we can accommodate all teams, but if you have a time conflict with this start time, please contact the organizer (or email Emma at email@example.com) and we will do our best to schedule your team for a later time. All participants will be required to register in advance and sign a waiver prior to participating.
Good Shepherd Dodgeball benefits Good Shepherd Children & Family Services, an agency of Catholic Charities that serves moms, babies, kids and families through foster care, adoption, pregnancy support, and a maternity shelter. Proceeds from dodgeball go especially to serve our foster care program, which keeps kids safe.
We are always in need of sponsors and donations to help make our events possible. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org.

if you are not able to come to Good Shepherd or are not available on November 19, please contact us to receive materials to promote adoption in your own community
Light refreshments will be provided for all volunteers (community and office based) before and after volunteering. After all volunteers meet back at Good Shepherd, we will host a prayer service to pray for the needs of our past, present, and future birth mothers, our adoptive families, and all those touched by adoption.
We believe that adoption is a loving and life-giving decision, and we would love to share that message with our community!
