You are probably aware that our charity has a Masters Softball Team!
This year we are again competing at the Softball Queensland Masters, where we will be defending our Division 1 title we won last year. However this year, we will be down one player, with the passing of our beautiful friend Jo McCullagh (nee Hopkins-Lamb) in May this year.
Joey will never be forgotten and all our fundraising efforts this year are in honour of her. Monies raised through our events and merchandise sales will go to Bowel Cancer Research. We are also conducting a raffle to raise money for Joey’s children, Cody (10) and Abby (8). These funds will go into the trust account we have opened for the children.
We are hosting a Bledisloe Cup viewing on Saturday night – come along, there are great lucky door prizes and no doubt the game will be a ripper (like all Aussie v Kiwi games are). We are all going to be at the park, so what better way to wind down at the end of another day’s hard play than to watch the game, enjoy a drink or two, a bite to eat, and raise money for this worthy cause.
If you can’t attend but would still like to donate, in honour of Jo, you can do so by clicking on this link. Thank you in advance.
A big thank you to Wynnum Herald (Quest Newspapers) who have rallied and shown their support but posting this article on the front page of their Wednesday editions – check it out by clicking on this link.
We look forward to seeing you all on teh 5-7 August at Meakin Park.
