Lilly Pruett Nevada County Heroes Softball Tournament

 In 2016, our daughter revitalized the law enforcement and fire annual softball tournament for her senior project at Nevada Union.  From 2016 through 2019, and even while Lilly was at Cal Poly getting her degree in civil engineering, she raised money through sponsorships and donated the net proceeds to the Nevada County Law Enforcement and Fire Protection Council every year.  After a couple of years of the tournament and before Lilly moved back to Grass Valley after graduating from college, the NCLEFC named the softball tournament after her and engraved her name on the trophy.  We are grateful and appreciative.

In 2020 and 2021, the COVID pandemic put a damper on the games, but on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at Gateway Park in Penn Valley, we are back at it!  The teams include two community teams and teams from Nevada County Sheriff, Grass Valley Police Department, Ophir Hill Fire, and Cal Fire.  The games begin at 9am, and a color guard will do a flag presentation at 10am after which our players will proudly sing our national anthem.  We cannot wait to see our community come together for this potentially rainy event.  We will make it work.

Our family, as well as our entire community, is proud to support our local law enforcement and fire protectors and to honor them this weekend as they should be.

We will try to broadcast some of the games on Facebook live.  Please come out and join us on Sunday at Gateway Park!
