Cover the Court with Coins is a fun and joyful fundraiser which challenges children to cover a tennis court with their collected coins. This event brings people of all ages from Rye and surrounding communities together to demonstrate that everyone can make a difference and no amount is too small. This event is held on a Saturday at the tennis courts of Rye Recreation. Some who collect coins simply deliver them to us with their best wishes while others can spend hours making intricate, creative designs on the court.
Volunteers of all ages participate in this multi-generational, collaborative event including many of the local high schools’ Cancer Awareness Clubs. The members of these clubs are instrumental in organizing the event from promoting the event beforehand to helping the children spread their coins around the court to collecting every last coin at the end of the day. By participating as a volunteer, children and adults alike show their support for SOUL RYEDERS and can earn valuable community service hours required by many schools.
Who can collect the greatest amount of coins? Cover the Court with Coins is a great opportunity for school and community organizations such as varsity sports teams, Cub Scouts, nursery schools, religious youth groups to come together and create mini-competitions among each other!
