DOTHAN, AL - The Fifth Annual Elected Officials versus Media Softball Classic will be held Saturday, April 27, at 10:30 at Colby Field next to Rip Hewes Stadium. The event is held annually to benefit the Wiregrass Area Food Bank and their mission of helping feed our community. The entry fee is non perishable food or cash donations to enjoy the competition, laughs and entertainment as the "Voter's Voices" and the "Watchdogs" square off once again to see who will have bragging rights for another year.
The event was the brain child five years ago of former WTVY reporter Erica Proffer who partnered with Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver to raise awareness and food for the Food Bank. Chairman Culver continues to "coach" the Voters Voices while the Watchdogs are now led by Kim Allen of WTVY. The event has grown annually and now includes a lunch at Red Elephant after the game with 15% of the proceeds going to the Food Bank.
Everyone is invited to attend the game and meet at Red Elephant afterwards.
