Wagga’s annual Softball Fun Day for charity pulled the biggest number of teams in the event’s history.
Now in its 6th year, the Amie St Clair Softball Fun Day saw more than 100 locals pick up a bat to raise close to $3,000 for the cause’s Melanoma Trust.
12 teams made up the competition held at French Fields sportsground on Sunday, consisting of friends and families eager to support the cause.
Event organiser Sue Mohr said the day attracted people from all levels of skills and, though it could be competitive, it was about having fun.
"people are so happy to support the cause and we see people who are softball enthusiasts right through to people who haven’t even seen a softball before,” she said. “Its just about everybody having fun, supporting the trust, remembering Amie and getting the message about sun safety and melanoma prevention across.”
The event is held in honour of Amie St Clair, a young Wagga girl who died of melanoma in 2009, and raises money for the trust which has been set up in her name.
