After the tournament, the party will move from the gym to the real event: the after party at Verdugo Bar! Libations, good music and food fromRounds Burgers will help all end the night off right.
Proceeds from the tournament will help provide funding for the Yacht Club’s Youth Programs. The ERYC–a Los Angeles-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to helping create positive growth for youth and young adults through workshops, mentorships and the game of dodgeball–works with local parks and their staff to help reinvigorate recreation centers in Los Angeles. The organization also currently runs three dodgeball leagues throughout Los Angeles–North Hollywood, Glassell Park and Venice—and encourages their over 300 young, socially-minded members to join their efforts in creating strong communities.
