Area residents who enjoy playing softball and would like to use their skills to raise money for charity are being asked to participate in a community softball tournament Aug. 22 at Bracken Field.

Corry resident Deb Baker is a coordinator of the event, which will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.

“I don’t have a personal connection to the group,” Baker said. “But the things that this organization does for children is amazing.”

Children’s Miracle Network is a nonprofit organization that raises money for more than 170 children’s hospitals worldwide.

Money donated to the organization will allow children of all ages and backgrounds to receive treatment for any disease or injury, according to the organization’s Web site.

Saint Vincent Health Center is a partner of Children’s Miracle Network and all proceeds from the softball tournament will be given to the Erie hospital to treat area children, according to Baker.

Baker first became familiar with the children’s organization after she began working at Walmart in Corry five years ago.
