I just want to thank everyone for the overwhelming about support and interest in celebrating the life of Brittany Arnold (Raymond). Kristin Matthews, the Raymond family, and myself have worked together to organize an event that will celebrate the life she lived through something she was very passionate about, softball. In fact, Kristin and Brittany’s family have done most of the organizing. I simply thought of the idea while driving to her funeral and now it’s really happening. It’s a beautiful blessing what people can accomplish when they come together and start making plans.
We’ve had some unexpected set backs; however, we have worked them out and are pleased to announce the softball tournament to honor the life of Brittany will be on June 18, 2010 at Hanna Nuttman park in Decatur, IN.  We will continue to provide you with more information as the event progresses throughout the year, but please know a few things have changed since my previous posts. You can also find this information available on the Facebook event page, Brittany Raymond Arnold Grand Slam Benefit.
 You are invited to attend a family-friendly benefit in remembrance of Brittany Raymond Arnold!  Brittany left us in tragedy on September 12, 2010. She was attending IPFW in Fort Wayne with aspirations of someday becoming a teacher. She loved to learn and loved children, especially her own. What can you do to help them remember her and celebrate her life? Come to Hanna Nuttman Park in Decatur, Indiana on June 18, 2011 for a day full of fun, food, and some friendly competition!

Even when making silly faces, she sure was beautiful. Again, this event is focused on celebrating the life of Brittany. She was such a beautiful and inspiring young woman, who had a lot to offer. Please come out and play – let us celebrate everything she lived for; together, we can honor her life, together.

Much love,
