McQuade Charity Softball Is On...sort of.  For those of you that play in the McQuade's Charity Softball Tournament, go to watch the games or just enjoy all of the activity around town on McQuade's weekend, we're a little disappointed that the tournament isn't taking place this year due to Covid 19.

For those of you that rely on what the tournament provides to the community in charitable donations, not having the tournament is horribly deflating.  Not to mention the economic impact to restaurants, hotels, liquor stores, bars, grocery stores, gas stations and convenience stores.

Many of us just think of playing softball when we think of McQuade's, but the games are actually the biggest fundraiser for the "McQuade Charities Softball Tournament", which donates to many non-profits around our community.  Not having the tournament this year has left the organization scrambling to find ways to continue to give back and continue their mission for those reliant on their donations.

Well McQuade's have teamed up with the Bismarck Larks for a great fundraising opportunity and something that can get those of us that love softball out of the house...
