Grab your friends and join GRID Alternatives' International Program for our fifth annual Play for Power tournament! Eight teams from different Bay Area companies will compete for the title of solar softball champion. Each team raises $1500, which supports a project to bring clean, reliable solar electricity to Door of Faith Orphanage in La Mision, Mexico. With your support, the orphanage will save hundreds on their monthly electric bill and many generations of children will have more opportunities to flourish. The best softball team wins AND the team that raises the most money for Mexico wins too!
