Expect some serious fun for a good cause Saturday as first responders from Davie fire departments, EMS and law enforcement battle it out on the softball field.

The action starts at 10 a.m. at the lower softball field at Rich Park in Mocksville, and will include activities for the family.

All proceeds will go to the Davie Firefighter’s Burned Children Fund.

“The fund is a local non-profit organization that assists burn victims and their families in our area following a fire, as well as providing fire prevention for burn injuries,” said Velvet Hackett, president. “Our fund is based solely on donations.”

Hotdogs, chips, popcorn and drinks will be for sale, and Jason’s Italian Ice will be on site. There will also be a DJ and yard games.
