Softball Tournament - South Dakota (2011)
Chad and Michelle I. of Flandreau, South Dakota are the parents of 10-year-old Rylee who is affected with CIE. In September, the family hosted their 3rd annual co-ed softball tournament. Six softball teams from the area participated in a day filled with fun, food and friendly competition. After the tournament, the 80 participants enjoyed grilled ribs, chicken, and hot dogs, grilled by a family friend. As family and friends gathered to eat, a free will donation bucket was placed on the serving line. Additional festivities of the day included a campfire, horseshoes, and bean bag toss. More than $1,600 was raised to support the efforts of FIRST.
