First Annual YWC Charity Kickball Tournament Announced


The IATSE Local 479 Young Workers Committee have announced their “kick-off” event: The 1st Annual YWC Charity Kickball Tournament! Every show is invited to form a team of 15 players and play against other shows in an all day event. If you are not on a show but still want to play in the tournament you can always register as a free agent and be assigned to a team. Teams can be comprised of any members of your show’s cast or crew – IATSE, DGA, PA’s, WHATEVER! All proceeds benefit The Global Village Project, a school for refugee girls located in Decatur, GA.

The Winning team will receive PRIZE BAGS and their name on a Stanley Cup style trophy that will be presented to the winning team at this event each year and kept proudly on display at the Local 479 office in between events.

The Kickball Tournament will take place in the Active Oval in Piedmont Park on Sunday, August 30th, 11am-7pm.

Registration is $25, or $30 day of the event, and 100% of the money raised to go to our charity, The Global Village Project. Registered members also receive a free t-shirt and raffle ticket for the many wonderful prizes being raffled off on the day. Members: check your email for details on how to sign up for this event, and be ready to join us in August!
