The annual Covering The Bases Fundraiser kicks off Friday, September 15, 2017 at 6pm and conclude after the midnight kickball tournament. The award winning fundraising event raises awareness as well as funds for the Horizon Field. The event is based on a partnership between the citizens of the community and the Acworth Police Department and supports the Horizon Field athletics and programming.
“Covering the Bases” was initially started to help raise the needed funds to build a synthetic rubberized ball field where children with all types of cognitive and physical disabilities could participate in recreational sports. Monies raised also helped to build a handicap accessible playground, as well as a handicap accessible concession stand. This fundraiser has since helped maintain the field, equipment, and create new programs; such as a kickball league, soccer clinics, adult baseball leagues and adaptive tennis.
During this event, there is a movie on the field, bounce houses, a dunk tank, a midnight kickball tournament, and much more. This is a fun filled event with activities for everyone. This is a 100% volunteer event and every dollar raised goes back into the Horizon programs.
