2015 NWSLL Fanfest was a HUGE SUCCESS!


Northwest Seattle Little League would like to extend a heart felt “THANK YOU” to all who contributed time and/or donations to our very successful fund raising event this past weekend.  Your efforts were amazing and helped us reach and exceed our fund raising goal by over two thousand dollars!  Every Team in the league contributed in the effort, making this one of the most participated events of its kind in recent NWSLL history.

There are too many to thank, but here is the start of the list of those who have given so much to make this event a huge success:

Our Event Sponsors, Metro PCS, Dominos Pizza, Coca Cola and Group Health for their donations of cash and Food/Drinks
All businesses and individuals who donated money or items for our silent auction
Our Fan Fest & Sponsorship Chairs, Julie McCoy, Colleen Mounsey and Joye McNamee and the other contributing Board Members
Event Volunteers, Coaches, Team Coordinators and parents for all of your amazing efforts (you know who you are!)
NWSLL Aumni and NW players who helped out with set up/clean up and helping out with the Pitch, Hit & Run events
Yuen Lui (also a league sponsor) and our Photo Coordinator, Sandra Davis, for making the Team Photos come off without a hitch
The ongoing support of all league and team sponsors.

Last but not least, the biggest applause must go to ALL Players, families and all donors who helped NWSLL surpass its fund raising goal, which will allow our league to continue to make Little League Baseball and Softball a cornerstone of the NW Seattle Community.  As players and teams are probably very anxious to know the final results in the Team and Individual fund raising competition,  these will be announced once all “off line” donations are collected and tallied.
