Softball Tournament Raises Funds for Three-Year-Old After Undergoing Heart Surgery


A softball tournament was hosted for three-year-old Crimson Thomas on Saturday evening. All funds raised at the event went to the Thomas family to help with medical bills and other financial needs toward Crimson’s heart surgery.

Crimson is the daughter of Steven and Haylee McMullin Thomas and the granddaughter of Bruce and Sherrie McMullin, Jennifer Zobrist-Penner, and Mark and Becky Thomas. She was born with a hole in her heart known as ASD (Atrial Septal Defect). The family found out that the hole would not heal on its own, resulting in surgery for young Crimson on Aug. 28. Crimson is reportedly doing well since the surgery and will have very little scaring.

Six teams played in the tournament. The Smith Team was deemed the Crimson Co-Ed Softball Fundraiser champs after going undefeated in the tournament.
