3/14/2017 TC Softball Game on Thursday!
The Tampa Catholic Softball Team is super excited to have us cheer them on to victory this Thursday, March 16th!!!

They have a wonderful evening planned for us, and we are hoping that you will be able to join us.

Our Players will have the honor of taking the field accompanied by a TC Softball Player and will be introduced with them. This is a great opportunity to further the buddy relationship and for the athletes to catch up on each others successes since our January event.

We will be presenting gift bags to the TC Softball Team members as a "Thank You!" for their continued support.

It will be cold so please dress accordingly. We ask that you are there before 6pm so that we have each athletes info for the on the field introductions. Your admission fees will be waived by wearing your Fields of Friends event shirt.

If you have not already done so, please contact me so that we can add your name to our "expect to attend" list. You do not need to commit prior to be able to come out and support.

Lets support them and we look forward to see you at the game!!

Deepest Thanks;

3/5/2017 Fields of Friends
Fields of Friends has been proudly serving our community for the last seven years. This would not have been possible without the dedication and support from so many. On March 16th, Fields of Friends would like to show our appreciation to the Tampa Catholic Softball Team by showing our community support at their softball game at Tampa Catholic High School.

The TC Softball Team has been a corner stone of support for our organization and has given their time generously to mentor our children. We can now return their efforts by attending their game and showing our support.

Please join us on March 16th at Tampa Catholic High School (4630 N Rome Ave, Tampa, FL 33603) for their 6pm game. Wear your Fields of Friends/Everyone Can Play event t-shirt for free admission at the gate for you and your family.

We need an estimated head count. If you are interested in attending – please reply to this email as soon as possible, indicating the total number of people that will be attending.

Thank you!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone on March 16th!!
