Youth Development FunDinner Auction (2011)

Event Start

Seattle, WA

DiscNW is excited to introduce the first annual Youth Development FunDinner Auction, held on Saturday, October 8, 2011. 

The Youth Development Fund (YDF) supports and promotes youth participation in Ultimate Frisbee activities throughout the greater Seattle area. It encourages populations traditionally deterred from participation in not just Ultimate, but from sports in general, by barriers such as finanical need and gender inequality. Many local young athletes who participate in YDF suppported activities benefit from the unique attributes of Ultimate as a sport. In addition to physical fitness, participants gain important life skills, such as improved dispute resolution, since Ultimate is a self-officiated sport.  Fundraising activities such as the Youth Development FunDinner Auction are a crucial part of the YDF's existence, particularly as the youth scene continues to grow.
