Covering The Bases – Fundraiser for Horizon Field in Acworth

Thecoverbases Acworth Police Department and the Horizon League are preparing for the upcoming Covering The Bases Fundraiser. The event will kick off Friday, September 13 at 7:00 p.m. and continue over the next 24 hours, concluding at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 14. This fundraising event helps support the Horizon Field athletics and programming. “Covering the Bases” was initially started to help raise the needed funds to build a synthetic rubberized ball field where children with all types of disabilities could participate in recreational sports. Monies raised also helped to build a handicap accessible playground, as well as a handicap accessible concession stand. This fundraiser has since helped maintain the field, equipment, and create new programs; such as a kickball league, soccer clinics, adult baseball leagues and new this year, adaptive tennis.
During this event, we have live concerts, a movie on the field, vendor demonstrations from local businesses, a midnight kickball tournament, baseball games and much, much more! We will have vendors set-up throughout the event, along with different activities for the kids (such as: bounce houses, radar speed trailer for fastest pitch, rock climbing wall, face painting, etc…). This is a fun filled event with activities for everyone! This is a 100% volunteer event and every dollar raised goes back into the Horizon programs. To date Covering the Bases has raised over $100,000.00 dollars to help support the Horizon League. Come out and show your support for this amazing league in Acworth! Donations are welcome.  Visit www.acworth.org and click on Calendar Event: Covering the Bases for donation link.
