Hosting home games can be challenging as a non-profit group. The costs associated with putting on events like our home games, and finding practice spaces can be very expensive.
We know not all of our fans can attend the games to show their support, but if you like their are other ways you can help us out. We have set up a go fund me account to accept donations to go towards the Betties 2015 season.
