Teams that raise $3,000 will earn themselves a suite with 12 tickets for a 2009-10 Senators pre-season game while also enjoying an in-suite dinner.

This unique event brings the beach to the participants as dump trucks descend upon Scotiabank Place parking lots with more than 2,000 tonnes of fine beach sand to create a spectacular beach volleyball playing surface.

More than 1,000 participants are expected to compete and raise funds for charity this year. Teams can include between five and 10 players. There must be one female on the court at all times. Teams can play in either the recreational or competitive divisions; all teams are guaranteed a minimum of four games. Terrific prizes are up for grabs, in addition to a silent auction on-site.

While enjoying on-site music provided by 93.9 BOB FM or Bump N' Smash's featured live entertainment, everyone can test their skill at driving a massive Cavanagh Contruction "ROCK" Truck.
