Stonebridge Building Group Teams Up For A Cause


The Tutti Frutti Tatas played harder and better this year in the Fifth Annual Saving Second Base Charity Softball Tournament in Hamilton.


For several years the Stonebridge Building Group, under the direction of Mark Crowe, has fielded a team in the tournament, which raises money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for awareness, education, and research.

Stonebridge’s team, the Tutti Frutti Tatas consists of various people associated with the company: some even came in from Wasaga Beach to play, cheer and support a great cause.

The soggy Saturday weather didn’t dampen the Tutti Frutti Tatas’ spirits or those of the other 15 teams.

Sunshine on Sunday gave the team some more energy; despite a loss in the consolation bracket, the Tutti Frutti Tatas played their best game ever.

Proceeds from the Saving Second Base Charity Softball Tournament are donated to CIBC Run for the Cure, which supports the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  For more information, visit http://savingsecondbase.ca.
