The 23rd annual Michael Dunahee Slo Pitch " Tournament of Hope" was a great success-- and is a major fund raising event for "Child Find BC"
The final figures are in it appears that we were able to raise nearly $12,000 this year! I am sure you are aware that the money raised through the Tournament of Hope goes toward printing costs for Child Find BC literature and the “All About Me” ID Kits. All of Child Find BC’s services from case management to ID clinics, to community awareness and education are provided at no cost to BC families.
This year we saw 24 Union teams, each captained and sponsored by their local union, playing in this charity tournament. The winner of “A” division was CUPE 454 with second place going to COPE 378 and most sportsmen like team award went to the Penguins ( UNDE ).
Again this year we provided free child care for player’s children, with licensed child care professionals on site from CUPE Local 2081 at Camosun College. The children’s favorite “kid’s game” at 1 pm on Sunday is always a great success and Sky Divers descended with the final game ball on Sunday afternoon. Over the years this tournament has become a favorite with Union ball teams from Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland—many teams have been in from the beginning and some are here for the first time—the tradition continues!
