Bay Area Companies Help Playworks Kick off the Summer

  1. Updates

Playworks Bay Area kicked off the summer on June 12th, when kickball teams representing eight companies from around the area gathered for the 7th Annual Playworks Corporate Kickball Tournament. Representatives from all levels of the companies joined in the full day event, which featured a catered lunch, music, and four games of kickball for each team. Playworks staff members were on hand to assist in the festivities, doing everything from refereeing to team management.

The tournament was a big success, raising $20,000 for the local program. Proceeds from the tournament will be used to support our program in 64 schools in the Bay Area. Special thanks to 24 Hour Fitness, Metrovation, Advent Software, DPR, Holland Knight, Jamba Juice, and Clorox for joining us on the field for a great day of fun and teamwork.
