Every year, employees of the City of Gulfport volunteer in various activities to raise funds for the American Cancer Society through its Relay for Life program. One of these events is an annual softball game in which the Public Safety Department team up against employees from the rest of the city. This year's game was held on March 20th at the Gulfport Recreation Center. Unfortunately, the other team was triumphant, scoring 18 runs to our 8!
Relay for Life proceeds from the softball game were over $225, thanks in large part to the sale of hot dogs grilled up by Chief Willocks.
Even though we were not victorious on the field, the fun and the support of the good cause made everybody a winner in this event.
