DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — 334 Prevention Project Youth Council works hard to teach drug, alcohol, and bullying prevention in local schools and the community.
One of the ways they achieve this goal is holding fundraising events throughout the year to raise awareness. On Saturday, 334 Prevention is holding their “Strike Out Drugs” first responder softball tournament.
‘Strike Out Drugs’ event is a charity softball game and we’re gonna have all these first responder teams play and battle it out on the field,” President of 334 Prevention Youth Council, Mary Catherine Howell said. “Gonna have a little tournament going on; we’re gonna have awards for whoever wins; it’s just a great day where we can have some family members come out.”
These events help raise funds for the 334 Youth Prevention Project, as well as raise funds for a charity local to the Wiregrass.
“People can donate to the game and all of the proceeds go to celebrate recovery,” Chic-fil-A Leader Academy Ambassador, Petra Ozbun said. “Which we are partnering with, and you can give any amount you want.”
If you are worried about maintaining social distancing, there are plans in place to keep all attendees as safe as possible.
“If anyone is wondering, we will have masks and hand sanitizer if anyone feels they want to use them,” Ozbun said. “Because it is an outside field, there is plenty of space to spread out. You can bring lawn chairs relax and just have fun.”
