Making it happen at Bayshore!

In the fall of 2016, I signed up to take over the fundraising and sponsorship duties at Bayshore. A few months later, we found out our family was being transferred to Orlando. My short tenure as part of the BSLL Board and its fundraising program gave me a rewarding sense of community and the happy occasion to meet many more families whose kids also play on the fields at Bayshore.

 Before I joined the Board, however, I hadn't spent much time thinking about how the sausage is made. I was just thankful for the amazing volunteer coaches that spent time with my two older sons each week helping to develop them into better players and sportsmen. But our fundraising efforts are also critical to the success of our program. 

 BSLL funds everything you see out of the donations we receive and your child's registration fees. The City doesn't keep our fields green and raked and in good condition, we do!--thanks to your support! Here's how:

 We offer various opportunities for local businesses and families to support our league including sponsoring uniforms for each division, banners that hang on the fields, and multiyear deals to sponsor dugouts, scoreboards, batting cages, and future capital projects. We also organize an annual social event for parents where individuals and businesses can donate goods or services to be auctioned off in support of the league. 

 We are always looking for ways to improve our facility to ensure it is a safe, clean and family friendly space where you are comfortable spending your time. We installed a security system last year and are looking forward to replacing our aging picnic tables with new more durable ones. These are just two examples of many that I never thought about being assuming the fundraising role. 

 How can YOU help, you ask? You can help us fundraise in ways big or small, your choice! Be part of a small committee that shares planning duties for the annual fundraiser. Make phone calls this Fall and Winter to solicit sponsor banner renewals for 2018. Volunteer to become a team parent and help collect donations towards team gift cards for our spring auction. Or if you have ideas of how to help, we welcome all volunteers!

 I will most certainly miss our countless days and nights at Bayshore, but I know our paths will meet again. Until then, Bayshore is in good hands...yours. Take good care of it. 


And, as always, Go Bayshore!
