The Park Forest Police-Fire Charity Softball Game was postponed due to heavy rain which flooded the Central Park ball fields.
The date for the charity game has been set for Saturday, September 17th.
There will be a home run hitting contest open to the public from 5pm to 6pm. $2 for 3 pitches, each home run will result in a raffle ticket for one of three great prizes from the Chicago White Sox, the Windy City Thunderbolts, and Deep River Water Park.
The charity softball game begins at 6pm, with the police and fire departments facing off. Admission is free.
There will be free face painting, jump houses, and Wii games for the kids. Additionally, there is a cash raffle with a $1,000 first prize, $500 second prize, and $250 third and fourth prizes. Tickets are $5. There will also be $1 raffles for a wide variety of prizes. Your public safety departments are proud to be splitting all money raised between the Illinois chapter of Concerns for Police Survivors and the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Burn Camp.
Spend the day at the Park Forest Art Fair in Downtown Park Forest on Saturday, September 17th, and then spend and evening watching your police and fire departments battle in out in Central Park for the Charity Softball Game Champion’s trophy!
