CPH – Cedar Park Heights Men’s Softball League
The Cedar Park Heights Men’s Softball League holds an annual tournament which ends on Fathers’ Day. Proceeds go to the Al & Millie De Souza Foundation, which pays for priority medical equipment for the Lakeshore General Hospital. Al and Millie were Sian’s grandparents.
The CPH has participated in every Sian Bradwell Softball Tournament since 1991 — the first year the event was opened to non-Kirkland teams, when park time became available.
In 2022, the weather proved a large hurdle for the League to host the annual “Valois” Tournament, but they still managed to raise $4,000 for the Al & Millie De Souza Foundation.
Carole Ravenda of the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation was on hand to receive the cheque from Cedar Park Softball players Ken McCarthy and Liam Alcalde, who is the president of the League. Also on hand was City of Pointe Claire mayor Tim Thomas.
2021 – Andy’s Haircut Challenge
As the pandemic continued to play havoc with league and tournament games, St. Louis player Andy Brookman took it upon himself to do some fundraising. The whole team plus family and friends got together to raise $2,035 for the Sian Bradwell Fund.

In spite of bad weather and the forced re-scheduling of the tournament to peak holiday season, the League still managed to contribute $4,000.
