After having its second annual Susan G. Komen for the Cure fundraiser softball games on Oct. 9 at Ken White Softball Field, the Reinhardt University softball program recently presented a $2900 check to the organization for the fight against breast cancer.

I would like to thank everyone who had a part in helping us with this event, especially our sponsors.”
Sponsors of the event, in which the Lady Eagles played intrasquad games, included Buffalo’s Café, Taco Mac, La Parilla Mexican Restaurant, PetSmart, American Bodyworks, Chamberhouse, BleuDame, Williamson Brothers Bar-B-Q, Herndon Heating & Air Conditioning, Kreations Hair Salon, Moore Buick GMC, Tacos & Beer Mexican Restaurant, Art Jewelers, Woodstock Insulation Company and Ember Hot Yoga. Several hundred people showed up to support the cause.
