This Sunday, some familiar faces from around Charlottesville are teaming up to strike out cancer.
The University of Virginia Medical Center's Patients and Friends Committee is sponsoring a day-long softball tournament fundraiser. The games include face-offs between local democrats and republicans, cancer doctors and radio jocks, and local media organizations, including the Charlottesville Newsplex.
The event will also feature a silent auction and former Delegate Mitch Van Yahres and radio personality Dick Mountjoy will be posthumously inducted into a Hall of Fame.
All the games are free and open to the public. The event takes place this Sunday from 12 - 5 at McIntire Park in Charlottesville. The first game starts at 1 p.m.
