It takes quite a bit to keep this program running. We rely on player participation fees, donations from local businesses and various other fund-raisers to help offset the added expenses. We have used coffee sales, vehicle raffles and last year’s calendar raffle. This year we are brainstorming but will go back to the calendar raffle again but modified to allow more time for selling the calendars and a concentrated time for distributing funds. Players will be expected to sell a minimum number of calendars and we will help with coordinating that. We are also talking about a large “Garage” sale with proceeds going both to us and to some local charity. Other ideas are welcome so that we can meet the demands for equipment, travel, housing, clinicians, etc.
Garage Sale – will be set for some sunny day in the preseason. Please use this as a chance for some spring cleaning for those items you have been waiting to move on. All proceeds will be split between Mariner Softball and a Non-profit of the team’s choice. Stay tuned.
Remember that you can give to the Mariner Softball Foundation ( for supporting fastpitch softball at all ages in Homer) by designating the Homer Foundation and then sending an email to Lauren Seaton (assistant at homerfoundation.org) letting her know your name and how much you donated.
