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.

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.
