Major Club Fundraising Opportunity

Pine Hills Lightning Baseball Club has been given a unique fundraisng opportunity by SoundDec.

SoundDec (Sound Decisions) is an audio solutions provider at major sporting events throughout the world and creator of the patented SoundDec© earwig Radio.  Their aim is to enhance spectator experience through an earpiece radio at various major sport events by giving the general public the opportunity to listen to three top commentary teams, Channel 9 TV, ABC Grandstand and Fairfax Radio. 

SoundDec has given our baseball club the opportunity to be a part of selling these earwig radios to the general public at the Australia v Pakistan Test Match (5 Days - Thursday 15th December to Monday 19th December) and the Australia v Pakistan One Day International (Friday 13th January 2017).

You can volunteer to be a part of this major fundraising event for the club with the benefits being twofold:

  1. The club will receive a percentage of each earwig radio sold at both events (5 day test match and one day international match)
  2. Volunteers will receive free entry into each day’s play to be enjoyed at the end of your selling shift (approx. 4 to 5 hours per day)
  • Volunteers will also receive a $10 Pine Hills canteen voucher for each day you volunteer

To volunteer, you must be 15 years of age or over (this can also be a parent with a child), be at the Gabba by 7.30am each morning and be prepared to walk around the entrances of the Gabba selling these radios.  You can nominate to participate for all or as many days as you want.  Volunteers will be provided with a shirt, cap and backpack containing the radios which must be returned to SoundDec at completion of the day.

The club requires 8-10 people for each day (six days in total) so don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to fundraise for the club and enjoy the cricket.

Please indicate your commitment to volunteer for this major fundraising event by registering your details in the link below:

More information will be provided to volunteers closer to the event.

Thank you for your continued support for our club.

Big shout out to Paul Hardie and BJ Ball Papers for covering the unexpected cost of a late season need for more game balls. In our last regular season weekend of games we had run out of balls and Paul through BJ Ball Papers offered to pay for this purchase. This is on top of BJ Balls on going sponsorship of Game balls. Thanks for helping out the club.
