Dodge for Hope

Published: November 17, 2017

SOMERS- The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Communication Department is proud to announce that the Communication 435: Integrated Marketing Communication class is teaming up with the Hope Council on Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse, Inc., along with the help of the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha to have the inaugural substance abuse awareness rally and dodge ball tournament. The rally and dodge ball tournament will be hosted by the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha at 1330-52nd Street on Saturday, December 2, 2017.  The goal is to bring awareness to the community about the risks and dangers of substance abuse.

The event will begin with team check in at 5 p.m. with games starting at 5:30 pm. The teams will consist of five people (male, female, co-ed) with an early registration fee of $10.  If you’re not pre-registered, you may do so for $15 at the door. Food is included with the entry fee for the players. Each team should wear closely matching shirts that display team spirit. During the event, there will be raffles and silent auctions, activities for young children, and music trivia for the parents who attend. Food and beverages will be available for observers at a minimal cost.

Local organizations that specialize in substance abuse and recovery will be there to talk about the dangers of alcohol and other drug abuse. The event will feature educational messages that accompany the dodge ball tournament.
