The Together4Tanner Foundation announced today the dates for their first annual 2 – day fundraiser in celebration of Tanner’s life. The Cloud 5 Fundraiser will take place June 4 – 5, 2015 in New Bern. Fundraising events include a golf tournament, fashion show and dinner to benefit the Together4Tanner Foundation.
The Together4Tanner Foundation was established after 15-year old Tanner Webb’s passing on June 2, 2014 as a memorial to Tanner and to positively impact the local community in his name. To recognize Tanner’s love for baseball, the Foundation is currently raising funds to build a memorial baseball park in Craven County for area youth as part of their 5for5 Campaign. The number 5 was Tanner’s baseball jersey number.
“Our mission for the Foundation is to give back to the community that embraced Tanner as a friend and a teammate,” said Trish Webb, Tanner’s mother and president of the Foundation. “We hope the New Bern community and beyond will enjoy these events which will help us get closer to our goal for building the community baseball park.”
