The Millet Minor Ball players raised enough to donate $1

On May 7 the group of players from Millet Minor Ball had a bottle drive to raise money for minor ball in the community.

With all the headlines in the news of the devastation in Fort McMurray it was decided that they would donate half the proceeds of the fundraiser to help another community in distress.

When the numbers came in these players (kids) raised enough to donate $1,200 to the Fort McMurray Oil Giants. They presented the cheque on May 25 to Kevin Tritten, zone director for Baseball Alberta and the president of CUB (Community Union Baseball). Tritten announced that Baseball Alberta would also match the donation by the players of Millet Minor Ball totalling $2,400 to go to the Fort McMurray Oil Giants.

Kevin expressed his gratitude on behalf of Baseball Alberta and reminded us that this is how we teach our children that we are all one community and how we all need to work together.

Thank you Millet and district residents for your generosity and support.
