Avnet to Host 8th Annual 16-Inch Softball Classic April 30 – May 1

Over 36 teams to compete in business-to-business softball game benefiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Spark of Hope Foundation

(TEMPE, Ariz.) – Any baseball fan can sing along to the tune of “take me out to the ball game…” but the 8th Annual Avnet 16” Softball Desert Classic will challenge Valley businesses and baseball buffs alike on their knowledge and know-how of playing with a Chicago-style 16-inch softball. With teams already beginning to line up to compete and an expected attendance of over 1,000 in the stands, local businesses are encouraged to sign up now through April 19 with either an all-men or coed team to participate in the two-day event, taking place at the Tempe Sports Complex.

“We started this tournament not only as a team building activity for the company, but also as a unique community event that other business could get involved in and have fun, while also giving back to some great causes,” said Chief Communication Officer and event organizer Al Maag. “Being from Chicago myself, there was no other way to do this than playing with a 16-inch ball, having Chicago-style hot dogs and two days of lively sportsmanship.”

The men’s teams will play on Saturday, April 30, with the CEO Team versus XTRA Sports 910’s Team beginning at approximately noon (which, along with the title games, will be broadcast on www.AvnetOnDemand.com) and the coed teams will play on Sunday, May 1. Winners of the competition, in both the coed and men’s divisions, will receive Suite tickets to an upcoming Arizona Diamondbacks game and the second place winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant.

Teammates’ family and friends, in addition to all Valley residents, are invited to cheer on their favorite team, enjoy live music, Vienna hot dogs, beef sandwiches and beer, in addition to face painting and other activities for the kids.

For more information or to sign up as a participating team ($250 to register), visit www.avnet.com and click on Community Relations or call Lisa Serrano at 480.643.7651.

Bake Sale Honors Mother's with Donations to Cancer Cure
While Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his discovery of the root cause of cancer being too much acidity in the body, we continue to fight breast cancer more than ever in this country. Other factors like toxins in bottled waters from plastic bottles leaching petro chemicals into acidic water and all of the other toxins in our environment play a role as well. LeeAnn Sharpe will support the National Bake for Hope drive to not only sell cookies, but to educate people about the issues that can help us prevent breast cancer based on proven research. The times and locations are listed above. She is currently seeking donations of baked goods and volunteers to help man the cookie sale booth.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed The Declaration of Independence?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died.
Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
 They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
 What kind of men were they?
 Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.  
 Eleven were merchants.
 Nine were farmers and large plantation owners... men of means...well educated...  but
 they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured
 Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
 Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly.
 He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding.  His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
 Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
 At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British general, Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters.  He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.
 Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
 John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she lay dying.  Their 13 children fled for their lives.  His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste.
 For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, please take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday to remember and silently thank these patriots.
 It's not much to ask, considering the price they paid.  

  • There are no rules here, we're trying to accomplish something. Thomas Edison

  • I'll keep my Freedom, my God and my Guns...You keep the Change...
  • A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -- Thomas Jefferson

It’s the summer of 1955, in a small Midwest town, when a young girl with big dreams falls for a motorcycle-riding stud who charges into town, and suddenly the laws of attraction are turned on their head. All Shook Up is built around the songs made famous by the one-and-only Elvis Presley.  Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Hound Dog, It’s Now or Never, Don’t Be Cruel, Jailhouse Rock, and many others, are the iconic hits that create the perfect backdrop for finding love in the unlikeliest of places.

Using a special version of Chutes and Ladders to demonstrate her point, Sister tells us where we¹ve gone wrong, and no one is excused from her firm belief that "sometimes we feel guilty because we are guilty."
