The Big Event - Everyone is Welcome!
From our hearts to yours, THANK YOU!  As a family we appreciate your partnership and your participation in this first annual memorial scholarship fundraiser in Jonny's name.  We look forward to seeing you there!  -The Tuthills/#24neverforgetjonny

We invite you to join us on Monday, July 17th at 7pm at the Grand Ledge High School auditorium for this first annual event in Jonny's memory.  Although Jon's love of baseball/sports will be the theme for the evening, everyone is welcome!  We want to extend a special invitation to area baseball and softball players of all ages.  The doors will open at 6pm to view silent auction items and place your bid - to see sports memorabilia items and start bidding by email click here: Auction Memorabilia Items. 

You will hear from noteable personalities such as:

  • Jason Colthorp as Master of Ceremonies.  Jason is a former WILX anchor, current WDIV anchor in Detroit, MI.
  • Jake Boss Jr., current Head Coach of MSU Baseball.  Jake will talk about what college coaches are really looking for in athletes.  What really matters?  It's not too early to instill these values in your young player.

  • Steve Springer, former big leaguer and Toronto Blue Jays Scout & Mental Conditioning Coach, current President of Quality At Bats.  Jonny was captivated by Steve's material on the mental approach to the game.  Mindset is what sets great players apart!  Each  baseball/softball player will receive a free copy of Steve's CD/DVD, a $30 value (first 200 players [1 per household], advanced ticket purchase only - click here for Tickets).
