Softball teams representing the Farmington Hills Police and Fire Departments, staff members from a variety of City Departments, Farmington Public Schools, and several community organizations go head-to-head August 13, during a tournament that benefits Farmington SAFE (Suicide Awareness For Everyone) and the Graham E. Smith Memorial Fund.
The Third Annual Farmington Area Community Softball Tournament and Picnic, held at Founders Sports Park in Farmington Hills, begins at 9 p.m. with an opening ceremony. In addition to games played throughout the day, the family-friendly event will feature a bounce house, tours of police cars and fire trucks, community resources, and a visit from Argos, the K-9 police dog. Concessions will be available, including adult beverages for those ages 21 and over.
Farmington SAFE is committed to raising awareness about mental health and suicide prevention. All event proceeds will be used for efforts to connect information and help to those who may need it. The Graham E. Smith Memorial Fund is a 501c3 organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible.
