TEC’s 1st Annual Charity Classic is looking for participants to support youth mental health

MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – Calling all softball enthusiasts and mental health advocates! If you want the chance to support a good cause and play a game at Rocket City’s Trash Pandas, you’re in luck!

The Enrichment Center, a nonprofit mental health agency that provides school-based mental health therapy to children and teens, is hosting its first-ever Charity Classic softball game at Toyota Field. The game will raise funds for youth mental health services.

They are looking for people to participate by becoming a sponsor or signing up to serve as a player.

Local celebrities and school partners will compete on and off the field in a softball game to meet fundraising goals.

The event aims to provide an opportunity for families and the community to come together to support child and adolescent mental health services in a fun, engaging and family-centered way.

The Enrichment Center said local district groups will also be at the game to entertain the crowds. Special guests will also throw the first pitch and sing the national anthem.

There are four different levels of sponsorship, and each comes with different special ticket packages and recognition.

The Enrichment Center says players will be asked to:

  • Attend the player briefing (February 2023)
  • Attend at least one practice with the team prior to the event (scheduled by coaches)
  • Promote the event to help teams achieve their fundraising goals

Players will receive meals on the day of the event, jerseys, an event hat, bats, softballs and helmets. They will be asked to provide their own gloves, cleats and other remaining uniform items.

To become a sponsor or register to play the game, contact Kenzie Crouch with The Enrichment Center at kenzie@theenrichmentcenter.org.

When it comes to off-field fundraising challenges, the two competing teams will compete to see who can be the best fundraising team. Fans and families in attendance can choose to donate to support either team and whoever ends the day with the most donations wins!
