McQuade Softball Tournament sets fundraising record

BISMARCK, N.D. - The McQuade Charity Softball Tournament Facebook page announced the receipt of record-breaking donations after the June tournament.

The tournament director says they raised $146,000, that's over $20,000 more than last year.

He says after 28 years of organizing the event, he was shocked by this year's overwhelming success.

"I thought to myself, 'good thing we're all sitting down,' because I think half of us would've fallen over due to the sheer excitement that we found out that we actually raised that much money," said Mike Wolf, McQuade Tournament co-director.

Wolf says more than 60 charities will benefit through the tournament.
