There will be a pair of charity events this weekend in our area. In Saraland there will be a co-ed softball tournament for Michael Ables II on Saturday at Neighborhood Park. The 14 year old student at Saraland Middle School was recently diagnosed with stage 3 Lymphoma. Michael is currently undergoing treatments at USA Womans and Children Medical Center. Concessions will be sold at the event and there will be a car show as well. The fee for softball teams is $150. The event begins at 8:00 AM and will run all day.
There is also an event in Atmore tomorrow. The VFW is hosting the Gear Jammers Car Show to benefit the veterans of Atmore. There will be food, as well as music by Dirty Harry. There will also be a blood drive to benefit Thomas Hospital. If you find yourself headed north you should definitely stop by and show some support for our veterans.
There will be plenty of entertainment to cap the day on Saturday night. Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day, and there will be live bands playing all over town. Fat Lincoln will be live at the Bluegill restaurant from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Plan B will be playing at Burnout’s Bar and Grill from 9:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Don’t forget to wear something green, and be sure to be extra careful on the roads tomorrow night.
