Bottle drive coming up

Looking to spend some of that hard-earned cash on a good cause? Well, you’re in luck.

Take me out to the ball game… that’s what the Sooke Bantam boys REP fastball team would like your assistance with.

This year the boys have the opportunity to participate in the Western Canadian Fastball Tournament in Regina, Saskatchewan, the Provincial baseball tournament in their hometown of Sooke and League tournaments in Vancouver.

With all this travel they need help with some fundraising efforts.

They will be hosting a bottle drive and scrap metal drive to help us with traveling costs.

These bantam boys have been playing baseball together for a long time, some of them since they were five years old.

Representing Sooke in all their games is something this team takes great pride in.

Having the opportunity to represent Sooke in multiple tournaments this summer is what this team has worked very hard for over the years.

The scrap metal bin will be set up in front of the Sooke elementary school over the weekend of  May 22 to May 24.

The bottle drive will be on Saturday May 23 from 9 a.m until 3 p.m. at the Sooke elementary school if you would like to drop them off.

We will also be having our team drivers roaming the neighbourhoods filled with excited players looking for your bottles.
