The fundraising sale is to raise funds to send the South Huntington Beach 10U Gold Dream Killers Girls Fastpitch Softball team to the Nationals on July 25th.

Clothes, kitchenware, furniture, many smaller items were placed in the driveway as buyers quickly pulled up even before the 6 a.m. opening. Many of the treasures were lovenly purchased to grace a new owner's home.

Beside the funds collected on Saturday, the public can still continue to help the team by donation by going to https://www.gofundme.com/shb-softball-state-tournament to really help out these young ladies with their expenses to the Nationals. They can't do it without your help.

The South Huntington Beach 10U Fastpitch Softball Allstar Team will be playing in the National Tournament on July 26-30 in Boise Idaho. The girls have won 3 out of 4 tournaments and lost in the finals in the only tournament they did not win.   The girls won the Central District tournament and took 3rd place in the California state finals. We are so proud of all the hard work and dedication it has taken for the girls to advance to the state tournament.
