More important things

A great read for everyone out there.  Congrats to Texas A&M.  We send our thoughts and prayers to the family Trinity Harrington.  A softball team is family, and sometimes there are more important things in life.

WFC collects toys for Toys for Tots

WFC held their annual Toys for Tots fundraiser in Myrtle Beach, SC on December 10, 2016.  With 30 teams, we were able to break our record and collected over 700 toys to be donated to the local chapter of Toys for Tots.  It was amazing to see how excited these players and teams get about helping out others  .  It was a great success and we are so happy that we are help these very deserving children have a very Merry Christmas!! 

(we had already loaded a truck full before we got the pictures) So proud of our teams!

WFC Raises Money for Breast Cancer Awareness

World Fastpitch Connection held their annual National Swing for a Cure softball tournaments in Florence and Walterboro, SC on October 15-16, 2016. This year, we were battling the affects of Hurricane Matthew and floods but were still able to host these two tournaments. Monies raised from team entry fees, t-shirt and merchandise sales, etc were donated on December 22, 2016 to the American Cancer Society. This year, WFC donated $3,200!! The teams were decked out in their pink everywhere and tournament t-shirts sold out!!!

WFC is truly grateful for the continued support to raise money for such a great cause and hope that next year’s numbers continue to exceed our expectations. These events are very near and dear to our hearts and hit home for us.  We hope the rain, floods, and hurricanes stay away next year so that we can continue to make these events grow and raise more money.

WFC would like to say a huge thank you to the teams, umpires, and staff that made this possible!!!
