Reunion Attire:

Because you asked, we are going to “Get in the Game” on Tuesday's Having Fun in the Process event and attendees can wear your favorite sports jersey or one that reflects The Grounds Guys. The Home Office will be in theme as well and wearing jerseys in The Grounds Guys' green. On Wednesday, all attendees' attire will be our standard gold shirts. 

weCARE Auction:

Get Ready for The Triple Play weCARE Auctions at Reunion! Thanks to the generous hearts of our franchisees, last year’s auction brought in over $13,000 (in U.S. dollars) for Ronald McDonald House Charities and just over $5,000 for Zees 4 Zees. This year, in keeping with our sports theme, Get in the Game, we will be holding a “Triple Play Auction” during our social on Sunday night.

How did we make it happen? Last year, we initiated a new tradition with the RMHC House Quilt donation where The Grounds Guys' Nation came together with enormous love and support and made $50 donations to support the Toronto RMHC location in Canada. This year, we’ll continue the same tradition and the RMHC House in Cleveland will be the recipient of these funds with a quilt lovingly created by Roger Waleri’s Mother Pat! Thank you to Roger and family for the amazing quilt!

To expedite our donation to RMHC, we will have donation forms available for you prior to auction to fill out with payment options. We look forward to another successful event in support of RMHC. Please visit RMHC Cleveland House website for more information on their house at: https://www.rmhcleveland.org/

In addition to the quilt tradition, we will have many more items on the auction block! Here are the game rules for the Triple Play Auction!

Choose any or all three auction modes of play: 

1. Heavy Hitter Live with Ryan Deatherage on the mic

2. Sidelines Silent (with bid sheets)

3. From the Bench Chance Auction (raffle tickets purchased and entered for the item of interest)

Have your game face on when bidding on any items! All items will be paid for at time of purchase, so bring your cash!

If you would like to showcase your sports team’s pride by donating local sports items or by donating Neighborly/Neighbourly memorabilia (like Maryland Crab Souvenirs, BC Salmon, Maple Syrup, Long Island Beach Goodies (wink wink), please contact Candice (candice.dillon@dwyergroup.com)
