Reinhardt Softball Program Raises More Than $700 for Fight Against Breast Cancer

Reinhardt Softball Breast Cancer FundraiserOn Sunday, Oct. 11, the Reinhardt College softball program held its inaugural Susan G. Komen for the Cure fundraiser softball games at the Jim & Syble Boring Sports Complex, and the first-time event was a big success. Reinhardt hosted a doubleheader with the NCAA Division III Agnes Scott Scotties and raised more than $700 for the fight against breast cancer.

"We would like to thank all of our sponsors and all those who came out to support Reinhardt softball and donate to this great cause," Lady Eagles head softball coach Glen Crawford said. "It was a successful event. We had a great turnout and got to see our 2010 team in action. We couldn't have asked for a better day."

Sponsors included The Coca-Cola Company, Kesslers Team Sports, Herndon Heating and Air Conditioning, Williamson Brothers Bar-B-Q, Softball Umpires Unlimited, Louis A. Riccardi D.D.S. and All-Star Athletics. Several hundred people showed up to support the event.
