Tip-A-Buck Set for June 14
Waterloo, Iowa – The Waterloo Bucks are inviting fans to The Other Place on Ridgeway Avenue on Wednesday, June 14 for Tip-A-Buck. Starting at 6:00 pm, Bucks players and coaches will act as waiters, serving customers drinks and dinner throughout the evening.
Each table will have a "tip" envelope, where all tips for the Bucks wait staff will go to the Bucks Summer Reading Program. Fans will also have chances to win autographed baseballs, an autographed bat, and other Bucks items through a raffle.
With the support of Amerigroup, Upper Iowa University Waterloo Center, and The Pump Haus Pub & Grill, the Waterloo Bucks Summer Reading Program encourages reading throughout the summer in the Cedar Valley. Throughout April and May, the Bucks’ mascot Bucky visited elementary schools throughout the Cedar Valley as part of the reading program. The students are rewarded with prizes for reaching reading levels ranging from 250 minutes to 1,000 minutes.
Elementary aged kids throughout the Cedar Valley are invited to take part in the Waterloo Bucks Summer Reading Program. Reading scorecards can be downloaded by clicking this link: http://northwoodsleague.com/waterloo-bucks/wp-content/uploads/sites/9/2017/05/2017-Waterloo-Reading-Scorecard.pdf.
