Yellow Socks Charity softball game went south and won!

Event Update 1/10/16

The game has been played and what a huge success it was.  An amazing array of talent (NRL and Softball) gathered with thanks to Brett ‘Noddy’ Kimmorley and Cindy Wann.  Of course the whole day was only happening because of the passion of Cindy to honour her friend, Tracey Dakin, who sadly passed away in July this year of brain cancer.   Play for a Cure Foundation is happy to host events and direct the funds as requested by the host. In this case Cindy has asked we donate funds, and honour our mission statement, to brain cancer research through the Mark Hughes Foundation.

At time of reporting we have raised just over $6000 and have a few more monies to come in and will hold one final auction item leading into Christmas with the aim to hit $7000.  You can help us reach this goal by donating online, simply click here or ‘like’ our Facebook page, and keep your eyes peeled for the auction that will be put up shortly!

*********************************************************************************************************************************** We are very excited to announce that our Yellow Socks charity softball challenge is moving to NSW (not permanently – the Brisbane Yellow Socks game is back for its 6th year in December!).

We are fortunate to be able to hold this event because of a passionate supporter, Cindy Wann who wants to help us find a cure for cancer, in particular brain cancer.  Funds from this event will go to The Mark Hughes Foundation to assist them achieve their goal  – to fund brain cancer research to decrease mortality rates and decrease the incident of brain cancer in Australia.

With thanks to Softball NSW the inaugural NSW game will be held at none other than the Olympic Softball stadium in Blacktown.  That in itself is exciting!

The game will provide an opportunity to watch some of the great current and past NRL footballers and Aussie and NSW softballers mix it up and take each other on in a 2 hour slowpitch match on the 25th September.

NRL legend Brett Kimmorley and Aussie Spirit shortstop Stacey McManus are the first 2 stars to sign up to this exciting new venture for Play for a Cure Foundation.

There will be an opportunity to have photos with your favourite stars and an autograph or two to be signed.

There will be raffles and silent auctions too!

Canteen facilities available.

Entry price is $10 per adult with children under 16 being free (gold coin donation welcome).

Come along, this is sure to be a great day!
