Home Run for Chelsea 2014
SATURDAY & SUNDAY September 13-14th, 2014
In association with community organizers, hundreds of volunteers, youth baseball and softball supporters including travel ball teams and recreational leagues throughout Southern California.
This annual two-day tournament, benefiting Chelsea’s Light Foundation, unites the Southern California community to make a positive difference in the lives of our youth. We are excited to announce that this year’s event will also include fastpitch softball and challenger games.
Starting as a grass-roots outpouring of support for Chelsea’s Light, the HRC tournament has grown into a unique, fun-filled charitable event that celebrates our common love for the game and our shared commitment to participate in positive changes in our neighborhoods. Thanks to your support, last year this event raised over $20,000 for Chelsea’s Light Foundation.
