All proceeds go to the Keri Holbrook Memorial Fund
Keri Holbrook was a bright and enthusiastic young athlete who had the dream of going to college and participating in sports. Her ambitions and potential were cut short when we lost this wonderful young woman in an auto accident. To keep her spirit, drive, and dedication to school and softball alive, we started this fund. Proceeds will be used to help female high school athletes reach their goal of attending college and also where we can in the softball community. The grants for school may be used for books, tuition, transportation, or for basic daily needs and expenses.
Thank you for your continued support in making this weekend everything it is meant to be - good people coming together to have a great time and celebrating the life of someone that was taken too soon. ~ Cindy Robb & Family.
