The rain held out as the 2nd Annual Bonnell Foundation celebrity softball took place at Victory Park in Canton.
It was so much fun and we can’t thank Team Media and Law Enforcement enough. I have no idea what the final score was! At one point Law Enforcement was winning, then the media came back strong and we were tied 5-5. After that — everyone kept calling it a tie game! Honestly, I think we all won Saturday. It was a day full of love, friendship, compassion, selflessness, spirit and simply some amazing people who helped raise over $7,000 for the Bonnell Foundation. Each person on the team added something special: the largest amount raised, the most enthusiasm as a challenged player, help promoting this on the radio or TV, encouragement, donated mitts and a wonderful display of team spirit. Ya can’t beat that.
Everyone said they’d play again next year! SO…see you next year.
A huge thank you to Victory Park staff (Karen, Ann Marie and Drew) and to the Ump who donated his fee right back to the Foundation. Thank you Chuck Gossett. Thanks to State Farm Agent David Arce and Holiday Market for sponsoring the event.
Laura Bonnell and the entire Board
