The band has been booked (see below), the food has been ordered (see below) and the venue has been reserved, so all systems are “go” for the 2009 edition of Weaver’s Weekend, set for Saturday, Aug. 29.
Sponsorships and donations are now being accepted. All money received beyond expenses for this event will be used to support the Mike Weaver Award at Vine Ingle Little League, as well as to support the league or charities that Mike would have supported. More than $4,000 was contributed to the league from the 2008 event (see VIDEO at bottom), so organizers are hoping for an even bigger event this year.
The 2009 event, like the inaugural event, will at the Armory Ballroom in Macon. Tickets are $35 each, or two for $60, and they will be on sale at the door. Sponsorships are available for as little as $100, which also gets you two tickets to the event. Details of what you get for various sponsorship levels are found in this sponsorship flyer (click here). Please review the flyer for additional information. Contact information is found on the flyer, so if you have any questions please let us hear from you, either by email or by phone.
