826DC is raising money by having volunteers and friends of 826DC compete in a bracket-style ping-pong tournament. Participants have the month of April to fundraise and on May 4 participants will compete at the main event. The more money each participant raises the more cheats they’ll be able to “buy” on the day of the tournament.
The Main Event
Saturday, May 4 at The Dunes (1402 Meridian Pl NW, Washington, DC 20010, map) at 2 pm
Fundraising participants will compete for a first place trophy and prestige in a bracket-style competition. Prizes will also be awarded for “Best Uniform” and “Bling Pong” (for the individual who raised the most money overall). Spectators are invited to help select the winner for Best Uniform.
Paddlestar Galactica Kick-Off Event
Monday, April 1 at Comet Ping Pong (5037 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008, map) at 6 pm
Participants will receive materials to aid them in their fundraising goals and generate their own individual fundraising pages. We have reserved the back room and you’ll be able to practice/show-off your ping pong skills while enjoying pizza and adult beverage specials. You’ll also take your official photo for the 826DC website.
Mondays in April at Comet Ping Pong (5037 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008, map) at 6 pm
Participants and supporters can practice their ping pong skills, flex their fundraising muscle, and enjoy pizza and adult beverage specials at Comet Ping Pong. Each week the top fundraiser of that particular week will receive a fabulous prize. These are open practices and everyone is invited to attend.
