The Black Penguins team raised over $450 for AALEAD and took home the championship trophy undefeated! We showed once again that alumni can keep up with the best of those undergrads. Thanks to the spirited players who helped clinch the big win and alumni who donated to a worthy local non-profit.

Batter Up! Break out your running shoes and start practicing that home run swing. It's spring training time for the annual Asian American Student Union Charity (AASU) Wiffle-ball Tournament. Join APAAN on the Black Penguins team and show those undergrads that alumni still got game!
When: Sunday, April 21, 11am-6pm
Where: Ritchie Coliseum, UMCP
Charity: Asian American LEAD (AALEAD)
AALEAD’s mission is to promote the well-being of low-income and underserved Asian American youth through education, leadership, and community building (http://www.aalead.org/).
How does this tournament work?
Prior to the tournament, teams (student groups & alumni) all fundraise for AALEAD. The teams with the top donation amounts pledged by the seeding meeting, will receive a higher seed during tournament day. The higher seed gives a team a run/point advantage for the preliminary games, which can help the team win more games and eventually advance to the semi-finals. Game play is similar to baseball, but with plastic bats and balls.
Since we are in different locations and are not able to set up a central fundraiser, we ask that you either make a personal pledge or contact your employer for a donation. This is optional and not required to play on the team – however, we greatly appreciate any contribution to the designated charity. Our minimum suggested donation is $20.
Your donation can be made via Paypal (preferred) to firstname.lastname@example.org or by check made payable to “Asian American Student Union” and brought on game day.
If you are unable to play, but would like to support AALEAD and our team's chances of getting a higher seed in the tournament, then you can still donate!
