The Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation is accepting funding requests from registered children’s charities in Manitoba, beginning today through Monday, December 15 for monies generated during the organization’s 2014 American Association season.
All funding requests must be submitted via the team’s website at Goldeyes.com and must include the nature of the organization, the specific amount being requested and for what the funds will be used.
Since its inception in 1995, the foundation has raised nearly $2 million for children’s charities in Manitoba through a number of sources, most notably the annual Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation Golf Tournament, which will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at Bel Acres Golf & Country Club next summer. Other revenue generators include fan donations, the Fillmore Riley LLP Ks For Kids promotion, the TCBY Radar Pitching Booth, memorabilia auctions, and the sale of ALLMOVE Secure Document & Data Management 50/50 tickets at Shaw Park during home games.
