Team Tassy was founded to show that every person can have an impact on someone else’s life. You don’t have to be rich, famous, or influential to help someone in need — all it takes is a little heart. Created after the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, the group’s mission is to end global poverty and suffering by connecting the poor with health and education resources — combating poverty at its source.

Team Tassy is holding an event on Saturday, July 21st at Point State Park to help raise some funds for this ambitious cause and to have a lot of fun in the process. The Great American Water Balloon Fight is sure to be a one-of-a-kind Pittsburgh event! You have until July 20th to register at the $20 price, which gets you on a team with 20,000 water balloons, a team t-shirt, and access to an entertainment-filled day (including an outdoor concert). You can also buy as many additional water balloons as you want for $2 each. (Same day registration is $30.)

To add to the fun, you get to pick to be on one of four teams. Choose between the Red Team with Abby from 105.9 The X, the Green Team with Tall Cathy from 96.1 KISS, the Yellow Team with Mike & Bob from 96.1 KISS, and the Blue Team with Randy from 102.5 WDVE.

So grab your water balloons and go help Team Tassy continue their great work!
