25th All Trades Softball Tournament
May 17th-18th at the Gier Softball Park in Lansing
This Father’s Day Weekend you can make a difference in the lives of the 24 millions Americans suffering from diabetes. Help carry on a union tradition by supporting your communities D.a.d.’s Day event. Every dollar raised brings us a step closer to finding a cure for diabetes.
Dollars Against Diabetes is an annual campaign organized by the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO. With the help of State and Local Councils around the country, the D.a.d.’s Day campaign has been able to donate over $40 million dollars to the Diabetes Research Institute, located at the University of Miami in Miami, Florida.
On May 17, 2014 softball teams comprised of our affiliates will take off their hard hats and work boots — put on their baseball caps and cleats and use their time and talents at the All Trades Softball Tournament to raise money for “Blue Print for Cure”.
