SVGLS Gives Back to Community With 3rd SCSC
Giving back is something that everyone can get behind and the Sacramento Valley Gay & Lesbian Softball League is using its 3rd Annual Sacramento Camellia Softball Classic to do just that.
All proceeds from the 28 team tournament will go to local Sacramento charities. Tournament co-directors Rian Troth and Augie Garcia want everyone to know what this event is all about. “Most importantly this is a charity tournament, so any proceeds we make we give back to the community. This year we are giving to Loaves and Fishes Mustard Seed School which serves homeless youth, and we’re also doing a backpack and school supply drive for low-income students in our area,” said Troth.
Teams can look forward to an opening night party on Friday at Badlands. Registration will take place there along with drink specials, entertainment and raffles! The closing ceremonies and party will be held at Faces Night Club. Trophies will be awarded at closing ceremonies to the top four teams in the D division and the top 3 teams in the C division. In addition to trophies, all teams will get a plaque with a team picture too! The tournament is guaranteeing four games per team along with two umpires per championship game.
The host hotel for the tournament is the Residence Inn by Marriott and the games will be played at the Watt Avenue Softball Complex all weekend long. Other sponsors for the tournament include Bolt, Live Well Real Estate and several other smaller contributors.
Northern California in August seems like a dream this time of year and the SCSC will be making many dreams come true for Sacramento youth through their charity tournament this weekend.
