3rd Annual Kaydance Lane Charity Baseball Tournament: Aug 13, 2016
Posted July 20th, 2016
If anyone playing in the tournament (see details below) would like to an UMP we are in desperate need of them, so please let Chloe know as soon as possible - Cheyloe Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or (705) 328-0464.
Remember to bring some cash to the event as there will be a BBQ (breakfast and lunch), drinks, Home Run Derby, 50/50 draw and a lot of amazing items for the silent auction! Please check out the Facebook page for the tournament, on which some of the auction items are posted.
Fastlane Carwash will be donating a percentage of their car wash sales on August 13th to support this cause. Plan to have your cars washed on that day at the Esso station with the carwash on Kent Street (Lindsay)!
For anyone who missed what the proceeds from this tournament are being used for, read on or check out this newspaper article about the event.
Planning for the 3rd Annual Kaydance Lane Charity Baseball Tournament has begun! This year’s recipient, Ryan Vlaad, is 7 years old and lives in Lindsay with his mother, father and two younger siblings. Ryan was born 5 weeks premature and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 11 months.
Ryan uses a walker to get around but as he continues to grow his family is finding it more and more difficult to lift him in and out of their vehicle. That being said the Vlaads have begun their journey to obtain a modified vehicle! Using the money raised from this tournament we are hoping that they will be able to accomplish this goal.
The tournament is being held Saturday, August 13th (Rain date: Sunday, August 14th) at Wilson Fields in Lindsay and we still have spots open on the Community Living Central Highlands team.
The cost is $275 per team and you would require a minimum of 9 players, 3 of them being women. It is soft ball and you pitch to your own team. There will be a BBQ and silent auction table as well.
We are currently looking for teams and silent auction items!
The first year this tournament was held for Kaydance Lane and the second year it was held for Taylor Welch. These two children are also living with Cerebral Palsy and were also on a journey to obtain a modified vehicle. I am extremely happy to say that due to in part of the funds raised from each tournament, these young ladies were able to purchase one! They continue to enjoy their independence and being involved within our community.
It is because of people like YOU, our community, that these tournaments were such a success!
Help us to help Ryan continue with his independence!
