Register Now for the 2018 Domestic Violence Kickball Tournament

 


Love Should Not Hurt, comprised of Lacie Brown and Jenny McCabe, as well as Glasgow Police Department Victim Services, is asking for individuals and businesses to register a team for the first annual domestic violence kickball tournament set to take place on Saturday, July 21, at Sullivan Park. An all day event, starting at 8 a.m., teams will compete for a traveling trophy, as well as raise funds for local victims of domestic violence.

Registration forms can be picked up at Milk River Activity Center or the Glasgow Police Department. If you live outside of Glasgow, Brown and McCabe are able to mail or e-mail you a registration form. Teams must have a minimum of eight players and must be at least 14 years old. The cost is $10 per player or a maximum of $100 per team.

Businesses are asked to sponsor a team or even create a team. A business who sponsors $200 or more will have their team fees waived and will also be placed on the sponsorship banner.

S&K Mini Doughnuts will be at the tournament serving their famous doughnuts and sno-cones. There will also be a concessions stand, where part of the proceeds will be donated to Glasgow’s Victim Services.

Glasgow Police Department’s Victim Service Specialist Shelly Ramsey states this tournament is to bring awareness to domestic violence as well as get the community involved in talking about the issues and finding ways to prevent violence. Last year during Love Should Not Hurt Swap and Shop, funds raised were a huge assistance to the victim services program.

There will be a no-host social at Busted Knuckle after the tournament where the trophy will be awarded, door prizes will be given out, and there will be music as well as a food truck available to refuel after a long and successful day.

For any questions about the tournament or to receive a registration form, contact Brown at 230-2162, McCabe at 230-1674 or Ramsey at 230-2312.
