The Tommy Bohanon Foundation hosted its 4th Annual Softball Tournament recently, raising $25,000 to purchase toys for several local charities. Ten coed teams participated in the Saturday, Dec. 9 event at the Cape Coral Northwest Softball Complex.
Participants and sponsors donated 500 toys worth nearly $5,000, including a $1,000 donation from Lee County Coalition for a Drug Free Southwest Florida. The toys will be distributed to the following organizations: Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida, Children’s Network of Southwest Florida, Living Word Ministries and North Fort Myers Fire Department.
On the field, the Goon Squad captured first-place in the softball tournament.
“We appreciate the support of the Southwest Florida community at this event,” said Foundation Co-Founder Tommy Bohanon. “The tremendous amount of toys and money raised will go a long way toward assisting the charities and making sure the kids have a great Christmas.”
The Tommy Bohanon Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting young athletes reach their highest potential on and off the playing field. Its programs and community outreach events have helped hundreds of children in Southwest Florida.
