Fall Volleyball Initiative

Cohasset “Volunteers for Volleyball” Hit it BIG!


W🏐W!! My most heartfelt thanks for a job well done!! Between the 35+ Volunteers assigned to court set-up on Wednesday, and the additional 30+ on Sunday, we exceeded our goal of 24 courts. When everyone was already tired and hungry late Sunday night, this team dug-deep as we were offered a BIG bonus for breaking down an additional 2 courts, the LAST 2 in the whole Convention Center!! The incremental payout for those 2 courts alone was $2,500!! Little did I know how much I was asking of these volunteers before this event began!!


So, on the shoulders of this mighty group of hard-working volunteers, $10,000 was raised toward our goal to have a volleyball club team!! And, although it is looking likely that we will have a team in the Fall of 2021 we have more funds to raise to reach our required $15,000!!


Please consider donating to the extent your circumstances allow on our GoFundMe page. And, I appreciate you sharing this on your social media sites and with those you know who might be interested in supporting the effort. gf.me/u/ztv5gh
