APPLETON, WI –
VPI, Inc. is to host an inaugural inclusive bag toss fundraiser called Tossing for Inclusion on August 17, 2023, at GameDay Sports Bar in Appleton. This inclusive bag toss tournament and fundraiser, presented by Green Bay Innovation Group, is designed to raise money to support VPI’s community programs, but more importantly, will offer teams of all skills and abilities the opportunity to compete against one another, as peers, in support of the cause.
“We’re really excited for this event because it includes those who will directly benefit from it. Competing and socializing in an environment that welcomes and includes everyone will naturally begin to reduce barriers, and we hope that this event shows the community how easy and fun it is to include individuals with different abilities, which is crucial to building a stronger community,” says Tim Riebau, President, and CEO of VPI, Inc.
Individuals of all ages, skills, and abilities are encouraged to participate. Team registrations are $100/team and include lunch, drink tickets, and an event shirt for each player. Tournament is double elimination with two guaranteed games. More details and registration information can be found by visiting vpiwi.org/events.
