RC Council Approves Charity Softball League Fundraising Request
Mon, 03 May 2021 17:20:54 EDT

Rogers City Council members have approved of a request from the Michigan Charity Softball league to hold a men's and mixed team softball tournament in Rogers City over Labor Day weekend (September 3-6, 2021).

City owned fields include those at Sports and South Shore Park, and all proceeds would go to the H.O.P.E Deli in Mount Clemens.

The group requested permission to use fields last year which was denied due to a last minute request without an opportunity to ask more questions, and covid restrictions.

Council members in discussion felt the activity may mean additional revenue for the local economy, and the community promotion and economic development plan includes hosting additional tournaments as a goal. As well, other local organized groups have completed seasons or nothing is scheduled for the fields with no conflicts.

As such, council members approved of the request.
