The Dryden Ball Diamonds Committee is a community fundraising organization made up of a group of dedicated baseball players, fans and general community enthusiasts that are working towards providing a safe, clean and inviting environment for people of all ages at the Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds in Dryden, Ontario. We are a non-profit organization using fundraising "events" to fund upgrades and improvements for the current Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds facility.
The Dryden Ball Diamonds Committee (DBDC) has gained support towards the “LIGHT OUR BALL DIAMONDS” Project from the City of Dryden, Federal and Provincial Governments to complete Phase One of construction at the Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds Complex. This first phase includes the installation of a lighting system for all four (4) baseball diamonds and the construction of a Two-Storey Pavilion with viewing deck, with a completion date for use in the 2011 season. These diamonds support 800 +/- ball players, which range in ages from 4 to 75. Phase Two of this project will be to complete the Pavilions’ Accessibility. Phase Three includes installing bleachers. Phase Four is to get furniture for the upper level of the Pavilion.
The DBDC has raised funds and completed 3 phases at the Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds. They are on the 4th and Final Phase of their plans to upgrade the Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds Facility Pavilion and Lights. Total project cost to date $1,034,392.90 with DBDC and sponsors raising $334,392.90. Volunteer Hours to date: 5,164
