Volley for Nepal fundraiser set for May 30 at Wilcox Park

The Vietnamese Eucharistic Youth Movement is hosting a Volley for Nepal/fundraising event on May 30 at Wilcox Park in Lynnwood.

Volley for Nepal is a volleyball tournament to raise money for the people of Nepal who were affected by the earthquake.

Last month Nepal, with a population of over 30 million people, was devastated by an earthquake that was the worst in 81 years. The earthquake killed over 5,800 people and injured more than 10,000. The aid that comes within the first weeks and even months is of a life-saving nature.

All of the proceeds will be going to Save the Children, an international charity that has been in Nepal since 1976 and is therefore in an exceptional position to help those in need. Save the Children will use this money to provide clean water, hygiene kits, emergency family shelters, blankets for babies, and any other kind of aid that is needed. Ten percent of funds will be going to preparations for future disasters.

The event officially starts at 11 a.m. with warm-up, practice, sign-ups at 10:15 a.m. 

The entry fee is $40 per team. The payment will be due on the day of the event, May 30 before 11 a.m. Sign up by May 28 at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1-1VrydI1g-kbOmcKw9DZQv5DmtrM401Zpvd5hwm6NgM/viewform?c=0&w=1
