Dodgeball Tournament Fundraiser: "Don't Dodge Your Education"
The Cashion Education Foundation hosted their 5th annual "Don't Dodge Your Education" Dodgeball Tournament Sunday, February 9, 2020. This fundraising, community building event brings together people of all ages for an afternoon of fun in support of public education. The event includes a dodgeball tournament with five age divisions, a raffle, silent auction, live auction, and a dance off. The foundation also runs a concession stand as part of the event. Teams are encouraged to dress up and compete for a best costume award. The creative names and costumes add to the fun:

Cashion Education Foundation raised $46,000 with this year's tournament. These funds allow the foundation to provide teacher grants and student scholarships each year. The tournament is open to the public, and sponsorships and donations for the event come from across the community.
Foundation President Stephenie Woody shared, "The outpouring of support is a true testament of how our wonderful community comes together and is willing to support not only our children, but our staff as well. The board is very humbled by our community and their support".
