SneakerBall is the only black tie and sneakers gala that annually celebrates the best of sports in the Greater Washington, D.C. region. The event is organized to recognize the Greater Washington Sports Alliance Foundation, the non-profit foundation of the Sports Alliance that uses the philanthropic generosity of individual and corporate donors to make strategic investments in emerging non-profits that use sports to enhance children’s lives.
For the second year in a row, sports fans will have the opportunity to vote on award categories honoring excellence in team spirit, community involvement, athletic performance, and media coverage. The winners of the awards will be announced live at SneakerBall VII on September 14th, 2010.
Chesapeake Bayhawk Defenseman Ray Megill has stiff competition this year. Fans have the option of nominating Megill, London Fletcher of Washington Redskins, Matt Capps of Washington Nationals, Mike Green of Washington Capitals, and more.
