The atmosphere at Spirit Communications Park Wednesday evening will be competitive, but the game will be anything but a grudge match.
The Columbia Police Department and Columbia Fire Department will meet on the diamond in a softball game for bragging rights, but more importantly to raise awareness of (and money to help find a cure for) breast cancer. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The game is open to the public, with a $6 admission charge. Donations of nonperishable food to support Harvest Hope Food Bank will also be accepted at the game.
In addition to the game, firefighters and police officers will have a chance to flex their muscles in a home run derby competition. The fun starts this Wednesday, October 19th at 7 p.m.
