This Saturday’s tournament officially brings an end to the Weatherford softball season, while serving the more important purpose of helping to bring Christmas to children in need throughout the community. Thanks to partnerships with Eggleston Flowers & King, Attorneys and Counselors as well as The Pizza Place, this event is a favorite. Team registration is set at a low $75 plus at least five $10+ brand new unwrapped toys that all stay local and go to children in Parker County.
