5th Annual Eaton Softball Tournament
EVENT DATE: Aug 26, 2017
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Aug 25, 2017
The 5th Annual Eaton Softball Tournament is now benefiting the Honor Flight Network!
About the Honor Flight Network:
Honor Flight Network provides the opportunity for veterans of WWII to visit THEIR memorial in Washington DC. at no expense. In the future, Honor Flight Network will also pay tribute to America’s other heroes who served during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, followed by veterans of more current wars.
The inaugural Honor Flight Tour took place in May of 2005. Six small planes flew out of Springfield, Ohio taking twelve World War II veterans on a visit to the memorial in Washington, DC. In August of 2005, an ever-expanding waiting list of veterans led our transition to commercial airline carriers with the goal of accommodating as many veterans as possible. Partnering with HonorAir in Hendersonville, North Carolina, we formed the “Honor Flight Network.” Today, we continue working aggressively to expand our programs to other cities across the nation.

The tournament will take place on August 26th at Bailey Park in Battle Creek, MI and it encompasses all of Eaton Industrial Sector.
