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.
