LITTLE BOSTON — The newly-formed Kingston Youth Sports Association is hosting a fundraiser brunch Jan. 26 at The Point Casino.
The fundraiser is noon to 5 p.m. Cost is $35 per person. Money raised will benefit the association.
Each person will receive one brunch buffet ticket (noon to 3 p.m.), $10 worth of slot promotional play, one free Ace, and $25 worth of table game match plays to use at The Pit.
A silent auction will be held at noon to 5 p.m. in the Boom Room.
The association launched after more than a year of planning.
The KYSA currently has a wrestling program and cheerleading program, and is raising money for a football program for 2013.
One of the goals: To give children in Kingston, Hansville, Little Boston, Port Gamble and Suquamish more opportunities to develop their skills in football, wrestling and cheer so they are better prepared and more competitive when they reach high school.
“It is our goal and mission to create a youth athletic program for the greater Kingston demographic,” KYSA’s Matt Berger wrote in a fundraising letter.
“Currently all youth sports are run through the North Kitsap programs in Poulsbo. While this was adequate in years past, the opening of Kingston High School and population growth of the North [Kitsap] communities has [led] to the need of creating a separate league in order to better serve the youth and families of the [North End].”
