The Friends of the Homeless is sponsoring a double elimination softball event to raise funds for the organization.

The game is free to attend and will take place on Saturday, September 16th at Midvale Park.

Volunteer Matt Ritzert says all profits will go towards day-to-day operations at the shelter.

“We have a number of sponsors. With the support of those sponsors and the entry fee for teams to participate in the tournament and the raffle – all of those benefits will go directly to the Friends of the Homeless.”

Additionally, the event will include 50/50 raffles and an assortment of food trucks.

A $300 entry fee will be charged per team. The team that wins first place will win a $500 reward.

To sign up to play or umpire, call Becka LeMasters at 234-228-3273.
