CORY JOSEPH WILSON FIREBALL 40 MEMORIAL BASEBALL TOURNAMENT 

 

August 27-28

Team applicants are being accepted for the Cory Joseph Wilson Fireball 40 Memorial Baseball Tournament. Sponsorships are also available. 


The 2016 Cory Joseph Wilson Fireball 40 Memorial Baseball Tournament is accepting team applications for the August 27-28 tournament at www.fireball40.com. Tournament play will be at L. Scott Stell Park and team divisions are High School (ages 15-18 yrs. old) and High School Plus for adults 18 and older. 

Now in its fourth year, the tournament honors the memory of 21-year-old Cory Joseph Wilson, a Savannah native who died in 2013 due to a fatal cardiac arrythmia while in class at Georgia Southern University. There was no A.E.D. (automatic external defibrillator) nearby at that time. In Cory's memory, his love of baseball and in order to help others in need, friends and familiy organized the Cory Joseph Wilson Fireball 40 Memorial Baseball Tournament. 

Since 2013, thanks to the generosity of sponsors, supporters, and players, donations have helped Cory's family and friends present A.E.D.s to the following locations: Chatham County's Tom Triplett Park, Lake Mayer, Memorial Stadium, Ambuc Park, Jennifer Ross Soccer Complex, and Charlie C. Brooks Park; City of Savannah's Guy Minick and Paulson Complexes, Daffin Park, and L. Scott Stell Park; Garden City's Bazemore Park Baseball Complex; the Habersham School; and Camp Happy Days (for children with cancer). Funds raised have also helped provide four scholarships to Georgia Southern University students. 

The Cory Joseph Wilson Memorial, Inc. is a 501-c-3. Donation, sponsorship, team registration, and other information are available online at www.fireball40.com. Remembering Cory Joseph Wilson - his life is a testament to live, laugh, and love. 


 

 

CITY SEEKS WEAVE A DREAM APPLICATIONS

Now-October 21st

The City of Savannah's Weave a Dream Panel is accepting proposals for cultural and arts projects now though October 21st. 

Project Funding Available for Innovative, Cultural Arts Programs 

The City of Savannah’s Weave-A-Dream (WAD) Panel has issued a call for proposals for the 2016 Weave-A-Dream Cultural & Arts Projects initiative. 

Applications will be accepted through the calendar year, while funds are available.  Programs are to be completed prior to December 31, 2016. The application must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the start date of the project; the last date an application can be submitted is October 21, 2016.      

Project funding is available up to $2,000 for specific and innovative arts, cultural, or heritage projects or presentations that have a measurable, quantifiable benefit to Savannah’s diverse populations. The Weave-A-Dream Panel seeks proposals that actively involve youth, seniors, and those who have limited access to arts based programs in Savannah. A priority of the WAD funding program is that organizations reach neighborhood communities, encompassing all city districts.   

To be eligible for consideration, an organization must be a non-profit, 501c3, head-quartered in Savannah’s corporate limits.  Proposed programs must also be produced within the City’s corporate limits.  No individual artist applications will be accepted. Agencies funded by the City of Savannah for 2016 are not eligible to apply.Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel and funding is awarded by a competitive funding process that considers the project’s artistic merit, quality of design, quality of marketing strategy, and plan for assessing the project’s success.  Successful programs will identify a community need and utilize arts and heritage activities as the primary strategy to fulfill that need.

Applications are available on the Department of Cultural Affairs website, under Funding Programs (www.savannahga.gov\arts).  Applying organizations may request application materials and technical assistance by contacting Rebecca Brown at 912-651-6760 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
