Softball Classic

The Softball Classic introduces an element of spirited competition, with teams from the community, local businesses, and organizations participating in a friendly tournament. To make this event a complete success, Lunch Break is asking community members, businesses and corporate sponsors to step up to the plate and join our Softball Challenge lineup. In addition to the softball challenge, we’re treating our wonderful neighbors to food, games and music — all in the name of fun and community fellowship.

Don’t forget to bring your fans! Families and friends are invited to cheer for the teams and enjoy the picnic. Registration proceeds support the vital services Lunch Break provides to our neighbors in need, including basic needs, clothing, life skills, housing solutions, and family counseling services.
