The Comox Valley Women’s Fastball League’s annual Charity Tournament – the longest-running women’s fastball tournament in B.C. – is set to launch year 31 this  weekend.

Teams from Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, Campbell River and Courtenay will take to the diamonds at Lewis Park starting Friday evening June 14 and will continue through the weekend with the finals set for Sunday afternoon.

This popular event has raised funds for local charities benefiting women and children for 31 years. Sports enthusiasts are guaranteed to see some great, competitive fastball. Players range in age from teenagers to those qualifying for seniors discounts and all are passionate about the sport.

Come down to Lewis Park to have one of Joan’s famous burgers and wash it down with a cool refreshment.  There will be cheap and fun games for spectators and players as well as 50/50 draws.  Silent auction items will be available for bids.

All monies raised from this event are donated to local charities.  The tournament organizers would like to thank all of the sponsors who make this event possible and all of those who donate their time, energy and hard earned money to make it so successful.

See you at the park!
