As I introduced via Facebook Live post entitled Giving Back: 2017 Donation Announcement (above) we would like to thank you for your support over this past year and accordingly wish to give back to those players, coaches and facilities in appreciation for their hard work and commitment to their surrounding communities. We will be doing this by making (3) donations this year to members of the Tanner Tee Community.
We anticipate a large number of submissions and in order to ensure the donations are received by the most deserving community members/organizations, we are asking you to follow these guidelines to a "T".
Tier One: $500 ---> Coach/Individual/Team
Tier Two: $1000 ---> HS/College Program, small organization, etc.
Tier Three: $1500 ---> League or Organization with multiple teams
Anyone or any entity connected to the Tanner Tee baseball/softball community is eligible to receive one of the donations. This means you can submit for your team, a private hitting coach, your neighbor, a league, or even yourself. Entries are scored by meeting the criteria listed above, in addition to the writing portion found in the form.
After that, selections will be assessed based on the content of the written portion. Please treat the written portion like you would a professional document, college admissions essay or important book report at school. The age of the writers will of course be considered, so feel free to involve the whole family or team, even if that means the tee ball team signs their names and a parent or coach supplements with the story line.
