Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend - A Fundraiser for Veterans Park In Pendleton SC

Updated on April 12, 2015

Fundraiser for Veterans Park

A PHS Alumni Softball Game and More

It was a fun day at Veterans Park in Pendleton SC on October 29, 2011. A group of energetic, creative alumni of the Pendleton High School Lady Bulldogs Softball Teams Stepped Up To The Plate and worked hard to raise money for the renovation of the ball fields at Veterans Park. Most of these women remember practicing on these fields when they played for Pendleton High School and they have fond memories of those days gone by. They wanted to do their part to make sure that future generations will be able to enjoy the park as much as they did. I think we need to have a repeat of this great event!Continue to scroll and learn more about Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend sponsored by Friends of the Park. This was an Alumni Softball Fundraising Event withCraft Vendors, Food Vendors, Games for the Kids, Dunking Booth, and more.This event raised over $,1,000 for our Step Up To The Plate Fundraising Campaign. Thank you to all the players and helpers. It would be wonderful to make this an annual event. Anybody interested in taking this on?Photo: Logo for Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend designed by OhMe

How About A Repeat Performance?

Love these shirts! I hope someone decides to do this fundraiser again. It was so much fun!

I know it was a lot of work for the organizers but it was sure worth it and I feel like everyone had a great time getting together again on the ball fields and making money for the ball fields.
