Garrison's Swordfish Hit A Thon
Organized by: Susan Keenan
Garrison is a member of the Falls Church Kiwanis Little League this year and is playing for the mighty Swordfish. We know this is going to be a great opportunity for her to learn about teamwork, self-confidence, and baseball. She has already figured out how to run in the right direction after she hits the ball, so we know it will just be a matter of time before we are heading to Cooperstown to see her inducted to the Hall of Fame....or something like that. Seriously though, this is a great league and the registration fees are kept low so the opportunity is accessible to everyone in our community. The fees are kept low because many business in our community provide sponsorships and because the league has an annual fundraiser called the Hit A Thon. This is an event where kids take turns slugging it out to see how far they can hit the ball. It raises money when generous people like yourselves who love your grand-daughter, niece, etc pledge an amount per foot hit (supposedly t-ballers hit between 400-600 feet) or a flat amount. The event is held this Saturday, May 10th and our team is hitting at 2 pm if you'd like to come see history being made in person-- but I will of course be posting pictures to facebook to commemorate our "I knew her when" moment, if you can't make it on Saturday. So, we hope you will support Garrison and the FCKLL by making a pledge, thanks in advance!!
