Catch DRW alumni softball games
The Detroit Red Wings Alumni Association, invites community members to the second annual Charity Softball Event held on Saturday, Aug. 7. It will be held at the Duck Lake Pines Park, 1241 North Duck Lake Road in Highland, Michigan. Gates open at 10:30 a.m. EDT, with participant and charity recognition beginning at 11:30 a.m. The opening ceremonies will feature Karen Newman singing the national anthem accompanied by the United States Color Guard. Patrons can get ticket information at Jkkc4@yahoo.com.

The Charity Softball Game will feature: Red Wings alumni, Detroit area celebrities, law enforcement and fire fighters from Milford, White Lake and Oakland County. All proceeds will benefit local charities such as Justice for Dominick Calhoun Inc., Wings of Mercy East Michigan, Juvenile Diabetes and the Lakeland High School Public Service Scholarship for a student going into law enforcement or fire fighting.

Tickets purchased in advance for the day will cost $10 per person, $15 per person at the door and all children under 10 are free. All tickets purchased will go into a drawing for raffle prizes that will be awarded throughout the day.

“This is our second season hosting this event while we not only exceeded our fundraising goals in 2009, we have increased our participation this year as well,” said Joe Kocur, president of the Detroit Red Wings Alumni Association. “With the help of the North West Oakland County businesses and exciting post-event entertainment, we anticipate doubling event attendance in 2010.”

During the event, participants can enjoy food and beverage provided by local businesses as well as entertainment by local celebrities. Prizes will be awarded during the games, while attendees can also join in on the silent auction filled with fabulous items to bid on. Between games you can get an autograph from your favorite former Red Wings or local celebrity. Kids will have their own baseball diamond filled with fun events and plenty of attractions. Various viewing bleachers and tents will be set up along the path near all four diamonds for supporters to watch and cheer their favorite charity or local public services. We recommend bringing lawn chairs as bleacher space is limited.

ABOUT THE EVENT: Originated in 2009 and based in North West Oakland County, the founders of this event wanted to sponsor an affordable gathering which would allow all families to have a good time while providing money to local charities and ultimately keeping the community in touch with the every day needs for people who may not be able to reach out and secure support when needed.

ALUMNI PLAYERS CONFIRMED: Joe Kocur, Darren McCarty, Brian Smolinski, Kevin Miller, Wayne Presley, Pat Peake, Dave Rozema and more to come.

TICKET INFORMATION: All tickets will be available for purchase at the police and fire departments listed above as well as Bakers of Milford, South Lyon Hotel and the Comeback Inn of Highland. For more information please email Jkkc4@yahoo.com or call 248-877-0938
Tickets may be purchased as well on line at www.wingseastmi.org
