Description
This 9 ball pool tournament with live music is an event designed to bring together pool players and live bands for a great cause: raising money for Kidz2Kidz (a charity whose mission is to provide creative methods to encourage and increase a child’s motivation to read using play and performance).

Starting at 2:00 p.m. and ending around midnight, there is plenty of opportunity for us to announce the donations and to urge people to bid on the prizes. One week before the event we will do a boost on Facebook advertising to hit our target market. Our goal is to have 100 prizes so we can maximize the amount of funds raised. As each item is donated, the donor's logo with a thank you will be placed on the website: http://www.brawn4brains.myevent.com/3/custom_form_2.htm, as well as on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/795625680513598/.

Brawn 4 Brains is a fundraising program (an obstacle course training program) that raises money for literacy programs. Brawn 4 Brains is currently raising money for Kidz2Kidz. Our audience is broad because we are hitting up five demographics:
1) people who play pool,
2) people who listen to live music,
3) people who believe in the importance of being able to read and enjoy it,
4) people who want to run an obstacle course,
5) people who sing karaoke (karaoke will start immediately after the bands are done playing, but the tournament will still be going on)

In addition to having raffles and auctions, we will be giving donated items as prizes for the pool tournament to also maximize our donations.

Kidz2Kidz is working on creating an audio ebook read by kids for kids (the first of its kind). The current project is Alice in Wonderland and the kids are so excited to be part of this innovative project to make reading fun by using performance activities such as acting in an audio ebook.

You can be part of history in making the first-ever audio ebook read by kids for kids. To see a commercial of the project, check this out: https://www.kidz2kidz-us.org/audiobook-program.html.

Thank you for considering Kidz2Kidz as a donor for our pool tournament.
