6th Annual Buzz Redford Tri-School Dads Softball Tournament

Posted by Len Gilbert on June 14, 2012

Players, fans, kids…everyone is going to have fun and raise some money for the three elementary schools. Principals from all three elementary schools are throwing out a “first pitch” at 9:15 followed by the traditional a cappella tri-school dad’s club rendition of our National Anthem.

Since 2007 the dad’s clubs from Piedmont’s three elementary schools each field a “pay to play” team. The winning school chooses an APCP program to receive the entry fee funds.

Coaches Field

873 Moraga Ave,Piedmont,CA

Piedmont’s youth soccer, baseball, and softball leagues make good use of Coaches’ Field. On off days, families have been known to picnic in the outfield.

There are no picnic tables, but there are restrooms, a pay phone, and a bike rack for those who are willing to brave the slopes ofMoraga Avenueon two wheels.

Prior Years’ Tournament Winners

2011 – Havens (2-0), Wildwood (1-1), Beach (0-2)

2010 – Havens (2-0), Wildwood (1-1), Beach (0-2)

2009 – Wildwood (2-0), Havens (1-1), Beach (0-2)

Green Fundraiser for Piedmont Elementary Schools

Posted by Len Gilbert on September 3, 2008

If you’ve been meaning to sign up for the September 27th “Piedmont Goes Green” parent party but just haven’t gotten around to it (or if you’re a new parent and this is the first time you’re hearing about it), now’s the time to do it!

We have a limited number of tickets still available, on a first-come, first-served basis ($65/person, $130/couple). Proceeds go to the the Piedmont tri-school fundraising effort. Join us in the beautiful garden of one of our Beach families for a fun-filled evening celebrating the national and Piedmont-wide movement for a greener, cleaner and more environmentally sustainable way of life.

Enjoy the bounty of the end-of-summer season, as you feast on delicious dishes made with organic, locally and sustainably grown products. We’ll provide an array of local/organic beverages including our signature, soon-to-be famous “Greenmonter” cocktail. But it’s not just about food: We’ll have the answers you’ve been looking for about the practical nitty-gritty of “going green”:

  • What’s the real story with “green” household cleaners?
  • What steps can I take to reduce my household’s carbon footprint?
  • Which plastics are safe for my family and which should we avoid?
  • Where did all this great organic food come from, and how can I get more of it?

To Purchase Tickets: Contact Margaret Ovenden at movenden@sbcglobal.net
