A philanthropy network that supports Middlebury athletes. Go Blue!

Winter hasn’t even begun, but the Middlebury College softball team is already looking forward to spring,” the Middlebury College softball team is eager to start the 2018 season. There is nothing like stepping onto the field on a warm Saturday afternoon for the first game of a doubleheader with Williams. With a core group of returners and some talented new first-years, the team anxiously awaits the beginning of the regular season.

I am writing to provide some brief team updates and to ask for your support. As you know, however, before we can play any games at home, we must first depart for our annual spring training trip. In March, Vermont is no place for softball. This year we will again travel to sunny Orlando, Florida, to compete in THE Spring Games. During this week in Florida, we will play 12 games—one third of our season. While there, we will play other quality teams from across the country.

To make this trip possible, we need to raise about $25,000 to help cover our costs. The money we make in concessions does cover a portion of that total; however, with the rising costs of food, lodging, and tournament fees, it’s just not enough anymore. Additionally, this year our break is the week that precedes Easter, and the flights and lodging prices are much more expensive than normal. I’m hoping you will be able to make a gift to the softball team this year.

Please consider making a gift now to support our trip!
