ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Local slow-pitch softballers are gearing up for the first annual Tara Carleton/Kenny Powers Memorial Tournament, an event to honor fallen former local softball player Carleton, whose nickname on the field was "Kenny Powers," based on the fictional television character.
The two-day event takes place August 25-26 at Roseburg's Sunshine Park.
There will be divisions for women, men and co-ed.
The cost is $250 per team and all proceeds will benefit Tara Carleton's children, organizers say.
There will also be a corn-hole tournament taking place. $30 per team to enter.
Other festivities include a 50/50 raffle and silent auction, an end-of-tournament BBQ, and more.
Details are subject to change as the tournament draws nearer.
If you're able to donate an item, gift certicate or baskets for the silent auction, or know of a business willing to donate, contact Jadyn Perreira through the Facebook event page.
