Hello, my name is Madalyn Roberts (Maddie), and I am a member of the So Cal Thunder Softball Travel Team. From July 15th through the 20th, 13 players from our softball team will be traveling to Park City, Utah as qualifiers in the Triple Crown Sports 16U/18U World Series. Each girl is responsible to come up with $1000 to pay for our expenses (lodging, food & flight).
My family has been residents of Elysian Valley for over 65 years. I am very active in my community. I played GPLA at Elysian Valley Recreation Center, as well as a volunteer coaching basketball and T-Ball. For the past 3 yrs I have volunteered with the summer camp at the rec center. I also volunteer at College View School in Glendale, which is a school for children with severe disabilities. My little sister Trinity is a student there.
In an effort to offset the cost of this trip, I am participating in several fundraising activities. However, in February my family suffered a great loss by the passing of my beloved Grandmother. It has been difficult for me and my family to try and raise money while still coping with this loss. I know that I can’t give up and as always I want to continue making my family proud of my accomplishments.
This tournament is a once and a lifetime opportunity. There will be over 150 softball college scouts out there watching us play. This is my time to show them what my hard work and dedication has done for me. My goal is to go to college on a softball scholarship and your donations will help me get there. I look forward to receiving a great college education so I can have a bright future. Any amount donated will be greatly appreciated from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you so very much,
(I have set up a GoFundMe account for this fundraiser. The link is http://www.gofundme.com/33pmto or you may contact me at
