Hotstart's Annual "Charity Championship" Softball Game to Benefit Hutton Settlement

— The Hotstart "Charity Championship" softball game, now in its 4th year, matches Hotstart's company-sponsored softball team against a team of fellow employees to raise thousands of dollars for local children's charities. Last year, the event raised nearly $4,000 for the Babe Ruth Bambino Buddy Ball Division and the organizers hope to raise even more money for this year's beneficiary, Hutton Settlement Children's Home.

In the months leading up to this year's August 11th event, Hotstart employees gather donations from area businesses and individuals for the selected charity. In addition to monetary contributions, donated items are also accepted which are raffled off at the post game picnic. Proceeds from the raffle are donated to an organization that assists children in need. This year the tournament beneficiary is Hutton Settlement Children's Home, an organization that provides a healthy and safe living environment for children, ages 5 to 18 in need of a long-term alternative home.

This year's Hotstart Charity Championship Softball Game is August 11th at 4pm at Orchard Park in Spokane Valley. The event includes a barbecue dinner for all attendees with raffle prizes given out following the game.

The HOTSTART intra-company rivalry began in 2009 following the conclusion of a company sponsored softball game in which an employee not participating on the team challenged several players to a sand lot game, claiming he could organize a team of fellow employees to beat the company-sponsored team. In subsequent years, the event has grown and generated great involvement among HOTSTART employees and family members. The 2012 contest already has an impressive list of raffle prizes and more sponsors will be added in the upcoming weeks.
