From June 30 to July 1, the family, friends and supporters of Jacob Villegas will be hosting a softball tournament. Villegas is a 8 year-old San Pedro kid who has been fighting for his life for the last two years after developing orbital eye cancer.
Jacob has been in remission thanks to Miller Children’s Hospital at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. To give back while paying off the medical bills, the Villegas family along with friends and supporters that have followed the family’s battle with cancer are hosting a fundraiser. Half of the funds raised from this event will go towards help paying down the medical bills incurred during Jacobs illness while the half will be donated to the hospital.
There will be food, raffles, and a deejay. You can also get your car washed while you’re there. There are currently 11 teams competing teams, but organizers would like add a 12th team to complete the tournament. The two day tournament is from 8a.m. to 8p.m.
