Asbury Park, NJ, June 9, 2008- For the second year, BandsonaBudget.com is proud to take part in the annual Asbury Rock Stars Charity Softball Tournament. With what started as an opportunity for local musicians to get together and support their own favorite charities, has become an event larger than anyone had expected. Doubling since last year’s tournament, the event will now include 80 musicians, 8 charities, and 2 fields. Each of the 8 teams has picked their own charities to play for, which includes local causes such as the Monmouth County SPCA and the Asbury Park Fire Department, as well as national organizations like Habitat for Humanity, and the American Cancer Society. With the help of sponsors, the charity hopes to reach a $10,000 goal, to be dispersed among the 8 charities based on each team’s ranking.
The uniqueness of the charity lies within the tight-knit musician community of Asbury Park, NJ. Flooding with singer/songwriters and bands, the city has created its own music scene, fostering the talents of a growing number of artists. With a deep support system for one another, the musicians are happy to step down from the stage and onto the field, for the sake of a good cause. Coming together will not only result in a sincerely enjoyable time for participants and observers, but will also demonstrate what is possible when a good cause is pursed.
This year, just like last, BandsonaBudget.com will donate the t-shirts that will be worn by all participating teams. As a company that is run by and serves bands, it is an event that they look forward to throughout the year. In addition to being a sponsor, BandsonaBudget.com’s own Danny Croak serves as a Board of Directors member, helping to coordinate and plan the event throughout the winter months. Not to be outshone, co-owner Bret Morgan will also be stepping up to the plate: not to swing, but to ump.
