Ninth Annual Men’s and Co-Ed Softball and Bean Bag Tournament
in Memory of Melissa Ann Friedges
June 18, 2016 at J.C. Park, 600 Arizona Street NW, Lonsdale
Melissa loved sports, and she participated in softball, volleyball, basketball and track.
She attended Holy Cross Catholic School and New Prague High School.
The Melissa Ann Friedges Memorial Fund was formed, beginning with a softball tournament, and the
event continues to grow each year. The proceeds from this annual weekend event have been used to
develop and maintain two ball fields at Holy Cross. Later, funds were used to add bleachers, fencing,
dug outs, irrigation, a batting cage and a storage shed/concession stand. Funds will continue to be
used to maintain these fields and are also given to surrounding communities to help fund their
baseball, softball, basketball and volleyball programs. In addition, money is given to the surrounding
communities for the maintenance of their athletic fields. Due to the field shortages in all the
surrounding communities, hundreds of youth are now able to utilize the fields maintained with money
from The Fund. In 2012, The Fund began giving scholarships to local high school students to be used
toward college education. Thanks to your continued support and participation, we know we can
continue to build youth fields and provide scholarships throughout our surrounding communities in
Due to overwhelming support, The Fund is now a 501c3 corporation
