LUDINGTON — The Mason County First Responders Charity Softball event held August 24, 2019 raised $1,052 for the Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.

According to Kaley Petersen, Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital foundation and community services director, the funds will be used to support local patients of the hospital’s cancer center in need of financial assistance. The fund supports expenses such as medications, co-pays, deductibles, transportation, food assistance, utilities, and more.

The softball charity event was held by local area first responders, law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency personnel in which two teams played three games for fun competition. Funds were raised through sponsors, bake sales, entry fees, and donations.
