On behalf of the GBA and Marklund, I wanted to thank those of you who donated to Marklund for your generosity. As of this email, the GBA Members, their families and their friends have donated $4,080.00 to Marklund. As of our May 31, 2015, 11:59 p.m. cutoff time, the top overall team was the Pony Padres who will get the opportunity to not only play a whiffle ball game against the Pony Cardinals (second highest total from Pony) they will get to play a game with the residents of Marklund. Way to go Pony Padres.
Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, the GBA/Marklund Field of Dreams event is being moved from this Saturday, June 6 to Saturday, August 1, 2015. Between now and then, we ask that you continue to be generous and donate to Marklund. The GBA\Marklund web page has been reopened to make it easier for you to donate. This donation page will remain open through August 1, 2015. If you haven’t done so already, please consider donating to this amazing place. As the event gets closer we will send out an announcement which will contain the game times and other fun details regarding the event. We encourage all GBA members, even those not playing in the game, to attend to learn what Marklund is all about. http://marklund.kintera.org/gba
