Century 21 pitches in $1000 to FNC Softball’s charity comp

FAR North Coast Softball has secured Century 21 Ballina Real Estate as sponsor of its Friday night mixed Charity Shield.

The competition is the idea of association president Lauren Forrester, who wanted to promote the sport while also contributing to the local community.

Competing teams will nominate a charity with the possibility of winning up to $700 for their chosen cause.

Century 21 Ballina owner Chris Hazlett has donated $1000 towards the prize pool.

“Softball is a great game that all the family can play,” he said.

“I’m delighted to contribute to the overall prize pool.”

The competition will run over eight weeks starting next Friday. It will be played under lights at Albert Park, Lismore, with full canteen facilities.

Five teams have already nominated: Century 21 Ballina Workers, Casino, Lismore Masters Blasters, Goonellabah and Shearman’s Warriors. Nominations will close on Sunday.

Inquiries to 0417 691 653 or email farnorthcoastsoftball @outlook.com

The cost to players is $80.
