This year, Shuley Cup is giving back to the community. All proceeds will be donated to the charity chosen by the 2010 Championship Team.
To date, we have raised at least $600. We will be holding raffles for donated goods, accepting cash donations, and asking for company matches (one company has committed to matching anything raised beyond the initial $600, capped at $1000). Please check www.shuleycup.com to learn more about Shuley Cup and to track the fundraising progress.
