IPD –OCFA Charity Softball Challenge


On Sunday June 26, 2011 Irvine Police Officers and Orange County Fire Authority Firefighters will step up to the plate for charity. The Police Officers and Firefighters will be donating their time and are asking spectators to donate a non-perishable food item to benefit Families Forward. 


This is a family event so bring the kids, neighbors and friends to enjoy an afternoon at the ballpark.  Admission is free, but be sure to bring that non-perishable food item! Team Kids will be there, grilling up hot dogs and hamburgers and offering other snacks.  Proceeds from food sales will benefit local Team Kids activities.


This best two out of three event will be held in the Deanna Manning Stadium at Bill Barber Park. Pre-game ceremonies will be conducted by the Nationally Famous Irvine Police Department Honor Guard and begin at 1:45 p.m. The first pitch will be thrown at 2pm.


Additionally, the Irvine Police Department and Orange County Fire Authority will be showcasing specialty police vehicles outside the stadium.


Special thanks to the Irvine Police Association for sponsoring this event.
