This is a "BIG" event where the success of the event hinges on participation by more than one team.  In order to have a worthwhile, successful event, we will need to have about 200 tickets sold with a maximum of 320.  If you choose to participate in the NATR, it is imperative that you understand that you are committing to helping in putting the event together.  As long as everyone does their part, it will be  a small task for each person.   

Checks can be mailed to Play Ball Sports Academy: 7855 Valley View Rd., Hudson, OH 44236

Fund Raising 
Tickets - $30 each

Ticket Sales - If 40 families participate in the event, this means that each family would need to sell 8 tickets on average.  But the proceeds of the event will be credit based on actual ticket sales. For instance, if $5,000 is raised at the event from horse betting and
other betting (ie 50/50) and a family sells 30 out of 300 tickets sold, that family will earn 10% of the proceeds ($500) towards their player tuition.

Advertising - The program will consist of 10-15 pages which will correspond to the 11 races.  Each page will list a race and the horses have a "race sponsor".  There will be opportunities to sell advertising on the blank page to the right of each race.  

$25 - Business Card
$50 - One third page
$100 - Half page
$200 - Race Sponsor

Name a Horse - The naming rights to each horse is "sold" for each race for $20.  The buyer of the horse gets to name the horse and wins some money if their horse wins the race.  One of the fun parts of this event is the creative and funny names that people give to their horses.  Encourage people to be creative (within moderately tasteful limits).

Basket Raffle - We will sell tickets to the basket raffle at the event.  We will allow individuals of groups to put a basket in the raffle at their own expense.  If you have a line on great prizes that you can get at a low cost or if you think you can put together a popular basket, you can participate in this fund raiser.  All money raised from selling basket tickets will be kept separate from the main fund raiser and the proceeds would be divided based on the percentage of tickets placed in your basket.
