Ladies T-Ball Classic
On Sunday October 1st, we played T-Ball! Organized and put together by all the ladies above, we had 6 teams participate in this family friendly event. Jim Lyles was our very entertaining announcer; Tim Henert and Matt Hunt were our unofficial but official umpires. We had a few cuts and scrapes throughout the games; however we also had A LOT of fun. After the games all teams, family and friends were invited to Sidetrack for some food that was donated by team members and refreshments. A special thank you to Ralphie and Lulu's for the use of their sounds system and golf cart during the games.
This fundraiser is focused on raising money for our Art and Music departments for AFC schools. We raised a total of $2,285 for the AFC Art and Music departments. This was raised through sponsors, shirt orders, 50/50 tickets sales (which was donated back) and a small concession stand ran by a few students. The monies raised will be split evenly between Laura and Denise to use on what is needed for their departments at both the high school and elementary school levels.
I want to thank everyone involved in this event. Without everyone's "Team work", I don't think it would have been as successful. Everyone's hard work and the sponsors generosity sure did shine through. Looking forward to next year ladies!
