1st Annual Volley For the Valley Tournament
SPRINGFIELD — Leadership Pioneer Valley (LPV)’s Alumni Association will stage their 1st Annual Volleyball Tournament on August 20 from 11am-3pm at the YMCA of Greater Springfield, 275 Chestnut St. The event is being staged as a fun way to showcase the region’s invention of volleyball and raise funds to support the leadership and community development work of Leadership Pioneer Valley.
Roughly 10 teams of six to eight will compete for the trophy and bragging rights that day. Sponsors include Northwestern Mutual and Freedom Credit Union.
“Volley for the Valley was organized in an effort to bring representation of area businesses together in a different setting in order to connect and spread the word about the amazing work being done at LPV. Why not bring on the spike to our networking efforts?” remarked LPV Alumna and event organizer, Lidya Rivera-Early.
