Saline’s 8U and 13U Travel Baseball Teams for the 2017 season are announcing details for their Fundraising Golf Event scheduled on Sunday, May 7 at Lake Forest Golf Club.
"Fundraising is a key component to keep these talented ball players in competitive tournaments and provide them experiences that will remain with them for a lifetime," says Andy Gottfried, Head Coach of the 13U Team. "Without the community’s support over the past 6 years, we wouldn’t have enjoyed the level of play and success we’ve encountered."
Both teams welcome all businesses and community members to participate and/or sponsor the event. This is each teams largest fundraising event of the year, with all proceeds directly benefiting Saline’s youth.
"Without the support of local and regional community businesses, we would be unable to achieve the financial requirements necessary to provide our young athletes with the quality baseball program we desire,” says Jeremy Whitford, Head Coach of the 8U team. “Your participation in this golf outing will aid both Andy and I in delivering experiences that will help mold them not only in athletic interests, but also allow us an opportunity to help shape our young citizens as they grow into Saline’s future leaders of tomorrow.”
