We are excited to announce that this week, WAKA is being honored with Playworks' Most Valuable Community Partner Award!
The NM Mesa and NM Sandia leagues of Albuquerque have a goal of donating $2500 to the Road Runner Food Bank this Thanksgiving. The league has already raised $2,000 and will be working to raise the rest before their end of season tournament on Nov 19th when they hope to present a check to Road Runner Food Bank staff.
We have no shortage of awesome and dedicated WAKA customers who continue to amaze us with the energy and fun that they bring to their leagues. We recently got an email from California WAKA player Padraic Culham, who claims to be "WAKA's best customer in 2011". This year alone, Padraic has played in 12 WAKA leagues, has WAKA shirts in 10 colors, and just played in his 100th game of the year!
So, we want to know... can you top this? Are you WAKA's Best Customer? Let us know in the comments. We'll pick our favorites and then one winner will get a free winter season of WAKA Kickball or Dodgeball.
WAKA players in the CA Crown league in Pasadena have shown their generosity this season by hosting “Most Charitable Team” contest in support of Young & Healthy. Young & Healthy is a non profit health care program that helps unisured, youth get access to medical and dental care.
