Annual Spring Show Fundraiser

SUNDAY, MAY 20, 2018

Join us Sunday, May 20, for the 38th Annual Spring Show Fundraiser—Head Over Heels’ LARGEST FUNDRAISER for our SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM. The day is jam packed with activities for the whole family, and allows underserved youth the opportunity to participate in our programs. The day of the event is put on solely by volunteers—our coaches and team parents volunteer their time for this amazing cause (over 200 volunteers donate their time!).


All HOH families (current, past, and future) are encouraged to join us. The day's activities include:

HOH Student Performance

Purchase pre-sale raffle tickets to be in the running for a Tiffany's necklace! Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase in the front office.

What is the Spring Show Fundraiser?

The Spring Show Fundraiser is Head Over Heel’s largest fundraiser for our scholarship program. Families are invited to join the day’s activities, which include performances by our students, a carnival in the parking lot, and more.

How can I support the spring show fundraiser?

There are several ways you can support the Spring Show Fundraiser.

Just by showing up to our event, you are supporting a great cause! Funds raised from admissions, activities, concessions and tumble-a-thon will support our scholarship fund.

If you would like to provide additional support, we are grateful for cash donations, as well as donations for raffle prizes, for silent auction, and food to feed our 200+ volunteers. If you would like to make a donation, call our front office at 510-655-1265 and ask to speak with one of the Spring Show Committee members, Joy, or Mikaela.

Donations worth $50 or more made before May 1st will get acknowledged in the event program. Those who donate $250 or more worth of goods or services are eligible to have a business card sized ad in the event program, an ad on all of our in-house televisions for one year, and your company's logo on our website as a supporter for one year.  Businesses that donate $500 or more receive everything previously listed along with a banner placed in both of our facilities for one year.  Last year Head Over Heels hosted approximately 1,200 parents, grandparents, guardians, and friends throughout the day at our event, all of which received the event program. This is a great way to get the word out about your business.

As a non-profit organization Head Over Heels strives to bring the benefits of the specialized athletic arts instruction that we provide to as many children as possible.  Any donation made to our organization is tax deductible to the extent of the current tax laws. We rely on donations from our patrons and members of the community to help keep us doing what we love to do; helping the young people we serve reach their potential while instilling a life-long love of physical activity.
