Benefit tourney this Saturday
There will be a benefit softball tournament Saturday, Sept. 15, at Potts Camp Town Park. It will be for men’s and coed softball teams.
The benefit is for Bailey Childers. She is the daughter of Keith and Toya Childers. She was born Aug. 20, 2006 – 14 weeks early. She weighed 2 lbs. 4 oz. She spent the first 95 days of her life in the NICU at Tupelo.
She has also been in the hospital numerous times since then. Due to complications breathing, she received a trach in May and kept it in for three months. On Aug. 17, 2007, the trach was removed. She must wait at least a year for her surgery to close the hole where it was. After the past year, the family is hoping everything can now start to be normal.
Entry fee for this weekend’s tournament is $150 per team.
Call Steve Henderson at 544-2898 or 333-7076.
