Organizer Trandy Langston said whether you play or want to watch, it will be a great time.
“Everyone in this town and all of ourfirends love to paly softball, so what better way than evrryone pitching in a few bucks to play a game we love and helpafamily out at the same time,” she said.
The Smiths lost their home in a fire earlier this month. The tables have turned on a family that helps others, as now they are grateful for others helping them.
“My family and I are very thankful and feel beyond blessed. I never expected this amount of support. Mostly because we devote our time to helping others, not ourselves. BUT, to see everyone come together gives me satisfaction knowing there are A LOT of people who care and love others as we do. Saturday is going to be a very emotional day for us but we are looking forward to it. Since insurance does not cover all of our personal items, we will be using all funds donated to our family to help us refurnish our house, and help us stay afloat until we we get a new home. Our main concern is getting our kids ready for school,” said Josh Smith, aka DJ Shorty B, who runs Opus Entertainment.
