A team of employees from Frymaster LLC, an Enodis company, took top honors last month in a softball tournament benefiting House of Hope, a nonprofit that serves troubled and at-risk teenagers.
Hosted by Frymaster customer Buffalo Wild Wings, the softball tournament generated a donation of $1,400 through team fees, tickets and food sales.
“We want to thank the Frymaster employees who donated their time and talents – both on the field and in the stands – in support of the charity tournament and House of Hope," said Una Palmer, director of human resources at Frymaster. "Participation in events such as these is Frymaster’s way of embracing our corporate philosophy of positive community involvement, while supporting a valued customer – Buffalo Wild Wings."
Six teams participated in the tournament at Fairgrounds Field in Shreveport, La. They included: (1) House of Hope; (2) Buffalo Wild Wings-Shreveport; (3) Buffalo Wild Wings-Bossier City; (4) Frymaster; (5) Eagle Distributing; and (6) G & G Distributing.
On the Frymaster roster were Michael Theodos, Kit Riley, Roderick Gaut, Dale Armstrong, Mark Lanier, Shon Tausch, Angela Jordan, Brittany King, Kathryn Trahan, Jim Shockley, and Dell Lacaze.

It is the goal of the national organization to have a House of Hope within driving distance of every major city in the U.S. by 2010.
