On behalf of Softball NZ a huge thank you to all in the softball community that attended the “Golden Homes Black Sox Celebration Dinner” Saturday evening at Alexandra Park.
Your support of the event was outstanding and it was truly wonderful to see the softball family unite as one in acknowledging the incredible achievements of the 7 times World Champion Black Sox.
I was my great pleasure to announce the Golden Homes Softball Foundation, a foundation that will strive to support the needs of young male athletes who aspire to be the next generation of Black Sox champions. A wonderful initiative supported by our community for our community. Details will be communicated to our members in due course.
An auction was held on the night In support of the Black Sox and Golden Homes Softball Foundation in which over $10,500 was raised. Thank you to all those successful bidders and a special thank you to Sir Peter Leitch who not only provided some very special memorabilia on the night but also great banter with MC Mark Watson.
Yours in Softball
