The mission of the Blue Wave Invitational since its inception has been to serve others and connect DHS alumni.  This year our tournament is excited to partner with Friends of Freddie.

As always, this tournament would not be possible without our presenting sponsor the Darien Sport Shop.  We thank them for their continued commitment to our cause.

Friends of Freddie

A popular resident of Darien needs our help now. Freddie Tuccinardi is known to many of us from his roles at all 3 of Darien’s Fire Departments, Palmer’s and Ring’s End. His positive attitude is contagious, despite his disabilities as a result of cerebral palsy. He does not complain and he does not ask for help, but his friends know that he and his family would benefit greatly from our help, specifically improvements to the home that he lives in with his mother on Edgerton.

Freddie’s home is not handicap accessible and his bedroom is on the second floor of the house.  Through the years, it has become more challenging for his aging mother to carry him up and down stairs. In addition, electrical updates and improvements are necessary for their safety.

Tournament Details

The tournament will take place the day after Thanksgiving, November 24th.  Gameplay will start at 10:30 am.

The cost  to participate in the tournament is $250 per team.  Please have a team captain donate the full amount on this page by Monday 11/20.

We are also accepting additional donations in order to fund this crowdfunding project on behalf of Freddie Tuccinardi.

Cost to make Freddie’s home handicap accessible: $5,000

 

Thank you for your donation. 100% of the donation you make to The Impact Vine will go directly to the 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization listed on this page, directed toward the project detailed above.  You will receive an emailed tax receipt to support your tax-deductible contribution. Thank you again!
