102.9 The Whale “No Mud” Mud Volleyball Challenge Raises $8,000!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 102.9 The Whale “No Mud” Mud Volleyball Challenge. The combined t-shirt sales and donations was $8,000 and all proceeds will be used to support people with epilepsy in Connecticut!

Congratulations to team Picozzi’s Pandemic Pounders who was the team fundraising winner with a total of $4,440! Sab’s Covid Crushers raised a total of $3,610. The top individual fundraisers will be contacted ahead of next year’s tournament to participate in the special one-time mud volleyball game.

We would like to thank Air Temp/Electrical Connection for their generous contribution to sponsor the challenge and their continued support of people with epilepsy.

We would also like to thank the entire 102.9 The Whale Radio team, especially Mike Picozzi and Ed Sabatino who agreed to play a major role in this promotion.

While this amount is not what a typical Mud Volleyball event would bring in for our cause, it will certainly help people with epilepsy live a better life. Fingers crossed we are back in the mud at Zoar’s Pond next year to celebrate 34 years of “Good Clean Fun”!

The fundraising challenge may be over, but you can still purchase a commemorative t-shirt and support people with epilepsy!

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.

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!

Special thanks to the entire 102.9 The Whale Radio team for being the media sponsor again in 2019. Special thanks also goes out to Mayor Drew, and the City of Middletown, especially the Water & Sewer, Public Works and Parks & Recreation Departments, Middletown Fire Department, South District Fire Department, Middlesex Amateur Radio League, DeRita Construction Company, Connecticut Rental Center, All Waste, Hunter's Ambulance, Troop 41 Boy Scouts, East PBE, the State of Connecticut Agricultural Station, All RV, Middletown Emergency Management, Bobcat Equipment, Sunbelt Rentals, American Carting, and Tilcon CT.

Thank you all for helping us improve the quality of life for the thousands of people in Connecticut who have epilepsy. Hope to see you all back next year when we celebrate 34 years of "Good Clean Fun"!

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!

Company, Inc.
