Big Brothers Big Sisters BIG Plane Pull Is Saturday, July 18th
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound will be holding their BIG Plane Pull Tournament at Boeing Field on Saturday, July 18th.
As they like to say: “Pull a plane. Make a difference.”
So get your gloves on, start practicing tug-of-war on the third runway, and get ready for an unusual, fun fundraiser.
Here are the details:
WHAT: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound BIG Plane Pull. Imagine you and your closest friends and co-workers coming together, combining your strengths for the ULTIMATE plane pulling tournament! (Truly, the only plane pulling competition in Seattle!) Be BIG! Be MIGHTY! Pull a plane!
WHEN: Saturday, July 18th
WHERE: Boeing Field, located at 7277 Perimeter Road, Seattle.
INFO: How it works: Teams consisting of five participants will compete in a single elimination tournament. Using a lottery method to establish the first round of the official bracket, match-ups will consist of two teams racing against each other to cross the finish line â€“ all while pulling an airplane by rope. The winning team of each match-up will move on to the next round in the competition. Additional activities, including trivia, a raffle and a free BIG Bracket Challenge will supplement the main event (and add to everyoneâ€™s chances to win prizes!).
PRIZES: Each member on the team crowned as the tournament champions will win a roundtrip airline ticket, courtesy of Horizon Air! Roundtrip tickets will also be awarded to the team with the best fundraising! There is no shortage of other prizes, either. The BIG Plane Pull will honor teams with the top three winners, most spirited teams and best costumes.
WHY: Your participation makes a difference. The one-to-one mentoring model at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound is simple, yet highly effective. We match a child (a Little) with a caring adult (a Big), and together we change lives. Our Littles are significantly less likely to skip school, use violence to solve problems, abuse drugs and alcohol or become involved with the juvenile justice system. Time and again, our approach has been proven by studies to be successful in both the short and the long term.
COST: All you need to do to participate is raise $250â€¦thatâ€™s like asking 10 people for $25! Once registered, you will find online tools, such as a webpage, that simplify your fundraising efforts. And weâ€™re always here to offer fundraising support when you need it.
