Every year, Empire In The Air  hosts a kickball tournament to fundraise for nine Project Pearls scholars to continuously go to school. This year was their 5th and again it was a success that they will be able to support our nine scholars!

Thank you so much Empire in the Air for spearheading this annual activity and for helping us fulfill our mission!

Here’s the full article written by none other than Francesca, our Project Pearls co-founder at the same time Empire in the Air founder aka ChiChai@Empire.

5th Annual Kickball Tournament

End of summer for us at Empire in the Air means its time for kickball!

Every year, we host a kickball tournament to fundraise for 9 Project PEARLS children to go to school. (Learn about one of them here!) Yesterday marked our 5th kickball tournament and it was another huge success because of our enthusiastic players and referees. Because of you, we can continue granting 9 children the gift of an education.

Meet this year’s teams:

Pitch Don't Kill My Vibe
Gang Green
Push-Up Bra
High Potential
Kicksilog
Ball I'd Like to Kick (BILK)

And our referees David, Andrew, PJ, Chris@Empire, Nea, Megan, and Andy


We began the kickball with stretches led by our referees to make sure every kickball player is ready to go.
