Key Elements of the Hit-a-Thon:

What do the Boosters do?
Year after year without fail, Kennedy Baseball Boosters step up and accept the challenge of raising the funds required to keep the Kennedy Baseball Program afloat. We accomplish this by collecting Program Donations, Sponsorships and Coordinating Fundraisers.
In the wake of drastic and ongoing cut backs, KBB takes great pride in working hard to keep our operating costs to a bare minimum, we also offer families several options to help offset specific costs. Your tax deductible Program Donation helps support field maintenance and repairs, coaching stipends, tournament fees, season-end activities, equipment and lots of baseballs!
(Little known fact: we spend an average of $2,000 a year on game-day baseballs!)
The remainder of our financial obligations involve tax & licenses, up-front costs for uniform & gear orders as well as fundraiser start-up costs, insurance, printing, website cost, bank fees, etc.
Check around, you will find that our Operating Costs are the lowest in the District!
