This past Saturday, my husband and I, along with our family, friends and community held our 5th Annual Give Back Lehigh Valley Softball Tournament! I’m excited to announce that we raised over $15,000 for the Center For Humanistic Change, right here in Allentown.
Each year we choose a different Lehigh Valley non-profit to be the beneficiary of the tournament. Over the last 4 tournaments, we have raised $25,000 hit $40,000 with this year’s funds! The day opened with a speech from our Whitehall Mayor, Mike Harakal, as he spoke about the Heroin and Opioid Epidemic in our community, and how it has effected many all us personally.
We also read the personalized letter we received from Governor Tom Wolfe of Pennsylvania sending his support of the tournament!!! (So Amazing!!!)
After this, we had countless games where each team played to have a great time and hopefully make it to the finals!
During the games, teams bid on raffles, enjoyed good from our sponsors, Bayou Boys Hospitality Group and enjoyed the sunny (unexpected) weather!
The tournament was a HUGE success and a day that my husband and our friends and family look forward to each year. We do this because it’s the right thing to do, and helps so many people in our community. Thank you to those who made the day a success, and if you’re interested in joining next year, comment below!
Until next year,
