Little League girls headed to State; raising travel expenses


By Chris Edwards

CORRIGAN– The Corrigan Little League 6u and 10u teams are both heading to State-level competition in Bonham, Texas, from July 15- 18. In order to raise money for their trip, these hard-working, athletic girls, as well as their coaches and parents, have put together several fundraisers that they are urging the community to participate in. The 6u girls (the Dixie Sweeties) and the 10u team (the Dixie Angels) are ready to do Corrigan proud in the upcoming tournament, and could use some help to offset their travel expenses. On Monday, July 10, Corrigan Subway and Texas Burger restaurant will host a Profit Share fundraiser for the teams. Customers just need to mention "Corrigan Little League" when purchasing a meal at either the Subway or Texas Burger counter, and Carter Enterprises will generously donate 25% of their sales to help with the expenses. This fundraiser is for both of the teams, with the profits to be split between them. There are also some eye-catching T-shirts available to help show support for the teams. Each team has a unique shirt design. The 10u team has a classic Corrigan-Camden Bulldog logo, with each player's name, as well as the coaches, listed. The shirt is available in black, neon pink, and neon green. The 6u T-shirt features a cartoon image of a softball player, and features all of the players and coaches' names. Both shirts are available in sizes youth XS to adult XL for $20 or 1x to 3x for $22. The teams' sponsors are also listed on the back of the shirts, and all proceeds made from them will go toward whichever team you purchase a shirt from. Those interested in purchasing a shirt can contact Chelsea Fitzgerald through Facebook for the 10u team, and Hollie Vera on Facebook for the 6u team. You can also stop by Everything Automotive to place an order for both teams' shirts. The softball girls also held a baked potato fundraiser at the Sechrest-Webster Community Center on Monday afternoon. The loaded potatoes, featuring tasty chopped beef and all the fixings, were a hit, as they sold out of them. Best of luck to these young athletes. If you can dream it, you can do it!
