Slo-pitch tournament a success

A division winners of the annual fundraising slo-pitch tournament held in Penticton, with proceeds going to a local family fighting cancer, were Summerland’s Bat N Boujee.

The Bench Warmers from Grand Forks won the B division and the Drunken All-Stars, from Oliver, won the C division.

Just under $2,000 was raised at the tournament.

B Division winners.
