Background

 

For the past 13 years, the Madden-Mariucci Bocce tournament has been raising money for charity.  Over 3 million dollars has been raised during that time.

The tournament began at Campo di Bocce in Los Gatos.  It has been held at Campo di Bocce in Livermore since 2006, which is when the Livermore facility was opened.
Proceeds go to charity, which this year included:

Special Olympics of Northern California
Easter Seals
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Tri-Valley High School Football programs,
    including Granada, Livermore, Amador, Foothill, and Dublin High Schools

It rained a lot shortly before tournament time.  This delayed the start.

The synthetic court holds the water, so it must be brushed off to the ends, where there are drains.
