Bump It. Set It. Spike it.
For Cancer Research.

Grab your friends and family for a fun competition of Drink-in-hand sand volleyball at Sideouts Sports Tavern in Island Lake, IL. This day of fun in the sun is being hosted by Gateway for Cancer Research's Associates Board.  In exchange, all members of your team will receive:

  • Brunch at Theory Chicago, 9 am to 11 am. (Brunch includes food and drinks)
  • Party bus transportation to and from Sideouts (note, the party bus, leaving at 11 am, will pick up at and drop off from Theory, drinks included)
  • Unlimited Budweiser beverages during the volleyball tournament, noon to 5 p.m.
  • Gateway logoed plastic cup

Team Prizes

  • For hitting your team goal, you will receive all of the above for free
  • Top fundraising team will win an executive suite Blackhawks or Chicago Bulls game.
  • Second place fundraising team will win a workout class at Orange Theory in River West, followed by happy hour

Supporting Cancer Research
In addition to your team's minimum $1,000 contribution, Sideouts Sports Tavern will generously donate $5 for each participant of the event to Gateway for Cancer Research. This means each fundraising team will fund a minimum of 92 days of cancer research - and you'll have a great time doing it!

Don't forget to bring some extra cash to participate in the 50/50 raffle tickets and buy some Gateway swag!
