Dems vs. Reps – Softball Showdown

softballCrest_webPlease join the DeKalb County Democrats as we take on the Republicans in a friendly softball game to benefit the Kishwaukee United Way. The game will be held on Friday, August 2nd at 2:00pm at Katz Park in DeKalb (IL).

To make this a successful event we need your participation both on and off the ball field. We are asking all participants to raise $25 (this is a minimum but we encourage you to raise as much as you can) for the Kishwaukee United Way.

We will be playing with a 16 inch softball and wood bats so gloves are not necessary to play. No softball experience is necessary just a willingness to have fun.

If you are interested in playing on the team please contact Mark Pietrowski at 815-762-2054 or MarkPietrowski@gmail.com by Friday, July 19th with your shirt size.

We will have a 50/50 raffle and concessions available at the event with proceeds going to the United Way.

Can’t wait to see you there as we raise money for this great cause!
