33rd Annual Mud Volleyball Tournament Raises $62,500!

What an exciting day at the 33rd Annual Mud Volleyball Tournament– We had sunny skies and 142 teams playing at this year's tournament! The event raised $62,500 which will be used to help people with epilepsy and their families throughout Connecticut.

After a long day of muddy games, it came down to new teams in the final match, Nasty Floaters and This Microphone Smells Like Balls. In an exciting final match, Nasty Floaters took home the trophy and title of Mud Volleyball Champions. Congratulations!

We were fortunate to have 16 $650 corporate teams supporting the event: Bob's Discount Furniture, Justin's Real Estate LLC, Disaster Restoration Services, Aerocision, Valley Green Inc., Siefert Associates LLC, East PBE, Trumpf Inc, Pratt & Whitney/MyFunBus.com, Orafol Americas, Senior Aerospace CT, The Red Lion Hotel-Cromwell, Northeast Diesel, LLC, Men's Wearhouse, Powerscreen New England, and National Debt Relief. Thank you also to Air Temp/Electrical Connection for their generous contribution in support of the 102.9 The Whale Team.

We would like to congratulate the top fundraising team, Rock Hard Service (sponsored by Powerscreen New England), for utilizing their online fundraising page to raise $2,670 for Mud Volleyball this year! It was a very close race with AeroCision who raised $2,380 to support our cause. Kudos to both teams and we truly appreciate their fundraising efforts!

This year, we are highly encouraging each team to raise additional money for MVT. All proceeds raised at MVT support the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut's programs and services.

Think about this...
If 150 teams raise $500 each, EFCT will receive $75,000!

It's easy...
10 people on a team each raise $50 = $500!

Ask 1 friend to donate $50
Ask 2 friends to donate $25
Ask 5 friends to donate $10

Please help us meet our goal!

A Special Thanks to Our Sponsors Who Helped Make It All Possible!
