Spring brings many things from rain showers to baseball and from spring cleaning to new beginnings. So, OYO presents this awesome opportunity to declutter for a cause – and help one of our very own ballplayers in her fight against an inoperable brain tumor.
OYO is making plans to host its first annual Used Equipment & Clothing Sale on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8, 2021. This event will coincide with OYO Photo Night (on May 7) and Game Day Experience (on May 8).
This initiative will be a fundraiser for OYO and 20% of all proceeds will be used to support one of our very own Tee Ball player’s fight against an inoperable brain tumor and The Blast Cancer Brain Tumor Walk on May 15, 2021 in Franklin, Indiana. The remaining funds will be invested in more quality equipment for our ballplayers and improved field conditions for all our teams.

ABOUT THE WALK
The Blast Cancer Brain Tumor Walk is a fundraising event for The Cure Starts Now held in honor of children fighting brain cancers like Brynnley, a five-year-old Tee Ball player at OYO this spring. CSN is able to provide funding to research hospitals and new, innovative treatments. Yet, there is still so much more left to be funded.
ABOUT THE DONATIONS FROM OYO
OYO will match all donations dollar for dollar up to $500. Families can make donations by dropping any donation amount in the collection bins at every concession stand on game days. In addition, 20% of all proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to The Blast Cancer Brain Tumor Walk in 2021.
