Softball Tournament Gives Back To Detroit
On Sunday, August 26th, the third annual Pitch For Detroit softball tournament will rally young adults to help drive the revitalization of Detroit.
The charity event runs from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. at Inglenook Park in Southfield.
Last year, Pitch for Detroit helped to raise $100,000 for the Do it For Detroit Fund, which provided rent subsidies (through the Live Detroit Fund) enabling young adults to move into the City of Detroit. This year’s “Pitch” will build on that momentum by raising funds for Do It For Detroit to support programs and projects that empower our young adults to transform the city.
Partnered with Repair The World, a national organization with extensive experience facilitating high quality service projects in the U.S., Do It For Detroit will provide microgrants ranging from $500-$3,000 to individuals or organizations looking to conduct high impact community projects designed to generate social change in the city of Detroit. Pitch for Detroit proceeds will also be used to support social action opportunities by CommunityNEXT, a division of NEXTGen Detroit, powered by the Jewish Federation.
For those who may not be able to be in town on the 26th, their support towards the Do It For Detroit Fund, can be shown by donating on the Pitch For Detroit website directly or choosing a player to sponsor. All event proceeds will come back to the city of Detroit and be donated to a local cause.
