filed under: Community Events, Living In Fountain Hills

Fountain Hills Pink Softball Breast Cancer Awareness Game April 16 2011Tomorrow morning the Fountain Hills High School ladies varsity and JV softball teams, along with the ladies Fountain Hills Little League will play in their 2nd local Breast Cancer Awareness Game at Golden Eagle Park in Fountain Hills. “The event is going to be bigger and better” says Assistant coach and organizer Joe Frosch. “The girls wanted to do this again” said Frosch. “They felt so good last year and were so moved when they delivered the money to the Wellness Center, they wanted to experience that a second time.”

Following the annual Eggstravaganza, Mayor Jay Schlum will kick off the event at 10:00 am with a softball signing. At 12 p.m. the Mayor will throw out the first pitch with the Falcons hosting Scottsdale Christian. TheĀ  players will be wearing pink ribbons to commemorate this wonderful event. To help raise funds for The Wellness Community of Arizona, various activities will be taking place around the field. Refreshments will be provided by some of the sponsors of the event.

Fountain Hills High Varsity and JV Softball teams plus ladies Little LeagueVistors will have the opportunity to purchaseĀ  “pink softballs” to earn savings at a variety of local restaurants, services, shops, salons, fitness and health facilities. Balls purchased for $5 will grant a month’s access to the amazing deals being offered by 36 local businesses. If you purchase the $10 ball the deals will be extended for three months, from April 16th – July 16. The girls teams will also be autographing your pink softball.

We can be proud of our young girls who are learning what it means to give back. This charitable event is something they wanted to take part in. As a community, we should be there to support them. Coach Frosch invites all of us to “come see them, talk to them, get an autograph and watch them play. They play for this town, and I think it would be great to see the town go to bat for them and this cause.”
