The Orange Ale House softball team soared in the CSC Co-Ed Softball Tournament Saturday, June 29, and carried the day, 4-0.
More than 100 softball players, fans, volunteer umpires and family members from across Connecticut came together in Fairfield to help raise funds to open the first Cancer Support Community in southern Connecticut. Funds raised at the “CSC Co-Ed Softball Tournament” will be used to offer free cancer support and education for patients and their families living with cancer.
The tournament at Tom Haydon Field and Sherman School Field in Fairfield featured five co-ed teams from across Connecticut playing in a round robin format.
Seporah’s Sluggers from Meriden took the runner-up trophy at 3-1. The champion and runner-up teams were separated only by their head-to-head game won 4-3 by Orange Ale House in extra innings.
The Cancer Support Community of Southern Connecticut (CSC-SCT) is an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community – an international network of independently chartered non-profit organizations. Our mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community so that no one faces cancer alone. CSC-SCT will serve Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex and New London counties and is raising funds to build its first facility in southern Connecticut, with significant offsite programming also planned through a variety of partnerships in multiple communities throughout the region. The Cancer Support Community program has five core components: support, education, healthy lifestyles, social opportunities, and information/referrals.
