2021 Tallies For Charity Poster

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Honest Jon Van Hoek for the information in this story.)

Calling all baseball fans, community members and runners/walkers…come join us for a fun afternoon of community togetherness! The Chelsea Monitors and Merries, practitioners of 1860-rules base ball, will be holding our annual ‘Tallies For Charity’ game on Sunday, July 18.

The game will begin at 12:30 p.m., and this year will take place at Robin Hills Farm (20390 North M-52, Chelsea MI 48118).

This is the sixth charity game we’ve organized, and this year we will be raising funds for SRSLY Chelsea’s new youth mental health initiative. There is NO admission charge, nor is there any mandatory donation to come enjoy the action.  100% of funds raised will go directly to SRSLY. 

There will be beverages available for sale (please no outside beverages), and Robin Hills Farm will be donating a percentage of beverage sales that day to the fundraising effort.

For a fun additional element of community solidarity, we’ll be organizing a relay-style continuous run and walk on the grounds of Robin Hills Farm during the charity game.  We’ll start the game at 12:30 pm with a tremendous base hit, and will enlist any and all willing runners and walkers to take a turn or two carrying the torch along the course we lay out on the beautiful grounds at RHF, as we complete a “home run” in support of SRSLY’s efforts.

Come help us make the home run last as long as we can.

Fans of all ages are welcome and invited to join us for a fun afternoon. Please help spread the word, and mark your calendars. Following the charity game, the Monitors will be playing a second game of baseball against our friends the Wyandotte Stars.  That game will commence at 2 p.m. 

If you are unable to attend the charity game, but would like to support the fundraising effort, please contact the Monitors at:  [email protected], or 248-930-6130. The Monitors are a registered 501(c)3 federal nonprofit organization, and donations are tax-deductible. 

For more information or if you have questions, please contact captain Honest Jon Van Hoek at the above email or phone. 

For the love of the game, and the spirit of community.
