Volley4Charity, formerly known as Volley4JDRF, started from the seed of a small tournament in 1998 called “Hannah’s Hope.” The original tournament was hosted to raise funds and awareness for juvenile diabetes. Since then the charity and the community around has evolved and transformed, and today is known as Volley4Charity. Volley4Charity has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
This year the tournament is raising funds for JDRF and the Autism Society of Colorado. The event is being hosted by Tom Davenport, the owner of The Island (Denver) and The Oasis (Broomfield) is donating the use of his facilities and all registration fees go to Volley4Charity. Davenport is also matching donations of up to 20 dollars.
John Buckingham, a Vice President and senior wealth manager of Presidential Wealth Management, is a long-time supporter of the Volley4Charity efforts and this year he is a sponsor.
If you are interested in learning more about the tournament, you can go to the Volley4Charity website or Facebook group. There are 5 tournaments and they are split between the The Island and The Oasis. You can find more information about the dates and location here.
Organizations or individuals that would like to support the cause can donate money or goods and services to be auctioned off through the silent auction.
