With the population booming, the number of participants in the Jim Ned Softball Association has doubled in size in the past few years. Coupled with the fact that they do not have their own softball field they have outgrown their current situation and require funds to build their own home.

The ultimate goal is to raise enough funds to build a softball home for these girls for practices, games, and even tournaments.
