Maeci & Gracie’s “GIVE BACK A WISH” 1st Annual Softball Tournament


Maeci & Gracie’s 


1st Annual Softball Tournament 

May 14th – 8:00 AM 

Avon Softball Park 


Maeci and Gracie met in May 2010 during chemo at Riley Children’s Hospital.  Maeci (11) was diagnosed in April 2010 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Gracie (4) was diagnosed in February 2010 with a brain tumor.  Since then they have become best friends, more like sisters.  We were blessed to meet each other and our families have grown close.  We were also blessed by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to travel to Disney World together in November 2010.  Maeci’s wish was granted and Gracie decided that she wanted to join Maeci.  So, The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, Indiana Region made it happen!  We had a wonderful time and we want to “Give Back” and help grant the wish of another very deserving child.  We would love for all of you, your family and friends to be a part of making that happen. 

Maeci and Gracie are holding a couple of softball tournaments this year to give back!!  Our first tournament will be on  May 14, 2011  at Avon Softball Park, so get your teams together!!! Let us know if you are interested! You must be 16 to play and your team can be co ed, all men or all women.  We are out to just have fun and help make a childs wish come true!   Entry Fee is $200 and it will be a single or double elimination, depending on how many teams sign up.  

We are looking for companies who would like to be a sponsor or give donations for a raffle. If anyone would like to make a theme basket to be raffled, that would be great. 100% of the net proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish and will grant the wish of the child we sponsor. 

 We are very excited about giving back! Our goal will be $6000 which is what it takes to grant a child’s wish. 

Thank you for all your support. 

Chris, Stephanie, & Grace Bennett 

Jay, Keli & Maeci Young
