4th Annual Charity Softball Tournament
The Military Foundation would like to send this cheer to local groups and the community:
On Saturday, August 22, 2020, two girls fastpitch softball teams, the Kokomo Fire Dept., the Kokomo Police Dept., the Howard Co. Sheriff’s Dept. and the Indiana National Guard played in a softball tournament at Kokomo Municipal Stadium. Members of these organizations volunteered to play in a charity softball tournament in support of the Military Foundation.
Admission was free, but goodwill donations were accepted as well as a 50/50 drawing and a silent auction of donated items. At the end of the day, the Kokomo Fire Dept. came out on top for the second year in a row.
The Military Foundation would like to thank these organizations and the following individuals for their support and donations:
- Mayor Tyler Moore
- Kokomo Jackrabbits (Nathan Martin)
- Blue Diamond Trading Post, who donated a new dirt bike that was auctioned
- Post 6 Ladies Auxiliary
- Lisa Tate
- Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 78
- UAW Local 685
- Erik’s Chevrolet
- Indiana Heartland Federal Credit Union
- Disabled American Veterans Chapter 28

…along with other veterans groups and individuals that were present and contributed to the success of this event.
The Military Foundation is a nonprofit organization that serves four counties. In those four counties, if a veteran runs into financial trouble, they submit an application for assistance. The foundation then reviews the application and, if warranted, assistance is given. If not, the individual is directed to an agency that can assist them.
Again, thank you to everyone that was involved as well as the community for their support in making this event successful this year.
