Thanks for a Successful Leadoff Party!

Thank you to everyone for a very successful Leadoff Party!

The first annual Southern Little League Leadoff Party was a huge success. We would like to thank all those who organized, donated items, and attended this exciting and fun event. Over 180 people attended the Leadoff Party held at Thousand Oaks Golf Club on February 4th. The event saw both current and former players, parents, and grandparents attend and have a great time. The popular place to mingle early in the evening was around the auction tables. Many stories were told while people were bidding and shopping the auction items. The silent auction winners were posted between 9:30 and 10:00, and then a live auction was held for Comerica Park stadium seats and for team color and naming choices. As the evening progressed people moved over to the dance floor to close out the evening. A great array of food and deserts were served all evening.

The event raised $12, 842.07 net profit after all expenses that has been placed in the general operating fund for Southern Little League. With the steady decline of funds being raised from the bingo that Southern operates, this was a much needed fundraiser and will allow Southern Little League to continue its tradition of being one of the best baseball and softball leagues in the state of Michigan.

Thank you again to all those that made this very special evening possible.

Bob Hams,
President, Southern Little League
