EAT, Ending Allergies Together, is a non-profit organization that promotes studies to accelerate food allergy treatments and cures. We have been given the opportunity to host a fundraising event here on campus to raise money for the research efforts fighting to end the food allergy epidemic. Our goal is to spread awareness of the EAT Foundation and to raise as much money as possible with the help of our fellow Gamecocks. WHAT: Dodgeball Tournament! WHEN: Friday, April 13th, 2018 - Strom, South Center WHY: Raise awareness and funds to support food allergy research DETAILS: -Teams of 6 (can be coed or same-sex teams) -Team's wearing the same color/theme encouraged, let's be creative! -$5 per player, $30 for entire team -Each player will receive a goodie bag upon arrival which will include a water bottle, phone card case, and more! We will provide snacks and drinks so bring your A game! ***WINNERS*** There will be prizes presented at the end of the tournament. Team who wins the dodgeball tournament will receive a $ tab for Jake's Bar & Grill in Five Points. The highest fundraising team will receive a $ tab for Jake's as well! All participants are encouraged to fundraise for their team. This will be easily accessed through your team's online fundraising page. At the tournament, we will also be selling raffle tickets and "Life's" for you to purchase. Purchasing a "Life" will allow you to stay in the game after being hit, rather than being taken out of the game. There will be a limit to how many life's each player can purchase - though each Life purchased will go towards your teams overall fundraising! Thank you for participating in our event and contributing towards the mission of advancing food allergy research and helping the over 220 million people globally affected by life threatening food allergies.
