We will have prizes for the Top Dollar Performer and the Top Roster Group Performers.  The Top Dollar Performer (individual who raises the most funds) will receive a $75.00 gift card to Swimoutlet!  The Roster Group that raises the most funds has a choice of A Chipotle Party, a Pizza Party, or an Ice Cream Sundae Party for their group held here at the Weymouth Club.  Just click on the link at the top of our Waves homepage to support all our great causes.  Thank you for your support!
