Volley4Nepal – a New York Strangers fundraiser campaign

On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit the small village of Barpak of the Gorkha district. With a death toll of nearly 7,000 and 14,000 people injured, the country of Nepal is in need of desperate funds to rebuild damaged homes, provide food and shelter and fund various campaigns to help the needed. The country is calling for foreign help and humanitarian aid. Unfortunately, efforts to deliver aid has been difficult to achieve due to landslides as well a poor weather. The United Nations is estimating that more than 3 million people are in need of assistance. According to their calculations, emergency funding of $415 million is needed to successfully help those affected.

Thanks to all the supports for our 2014 raffle fundraiser….

With the 2014 season coming to a close, the New York Strangers and all its members would like to thank everyone for all their support for the 2014 volleyball season.  Congratulations to your Mens and Womens team for take first place in the Silver Bracket.  It’s our first steps in gaining momentum back into the gold brackets in Las Vegas.

This years fundraiser has been a great success.  We’d like to thank all the members once again for reaching out to all family and friends to help fund raise for the 2014 season.

A big shout out to Amy Ye and Liane Xie for selling the most raffle tickets this year.  Both ladies went out and sold over 50 bundles of booklets each (that’s a lot of raffle tickets).  Thanks to Ming So for helping arrange the raffle and making sure everyone was able to supply the supporters with their tickets.

The raffle winners are now uploaded  for viewers to see who were the ultimate prize winner.  As you can see below, there were a lot of people who wanted that Xbox.  Maybe next year, the club will raffle off 2 Xbox’s rather than just one.

The summer is almost here and with that being said our 9Man summer program is about to begin.  This year we are on a “Journey to Vegas!” as this years’ NACIVT tournament will be hosting in Las Vegas.  With that in mind transport can be costly so we are making every effort to make the cost lower for our members.  We are asking our members to sell raffles to pay for majority of their expense for the summer.  Every raffle ticket they sell will count and it’ll show them how much support their friends and family will have for them.  Of course with raffles there are great prizes to be won.  Here are the listing of prizes:

Prizes (Total Ticket Sold)

Apple iPad Air (600)

Stranger Gears (720)

32″ LCD TV (1,080)

Start of the 2014 season….

Thank you to everyone that was able to come out and help support the New York Strangers Sports Organization fund raising dinner on May 17, 2014.  The NACIVT is going to be held in Las Vegas Nevada in 2014 and the club is looking to make the trip as easy as possible for the kids who want to participate in the yearly event.

Members will be trying to help sell raffle tickets this year to help alleviate the cost of the trip to the west coast.  The club is trying its best  to help everyone in our club have an enriched experience playing with our club, while learning all about the game and it’s history over the past 69 years.  So remember, find a New York Stranger club member and ask them about buying raffle tickets for this year.  They’re only $2 a ticket and it’s $5 for 3 tickets!

In case you missed the club’s slideshow video for the start of the 2014 season, the video has been reposted for viewing.  The link to the pictures from the banquet are up as well, and a few pictures from the dinner are up on the page now.  See you at our next banquet in September and good luck to all the participants who are competing in the NACIVT 2014 in Las Vegas Nevada.
