Covering the Bases begins Friday

ACWORTH, Ga. -- The Acworth Police Department's Covering the Bases fundraiser will begin this Friday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m.

Covering the Bases is a 24-hour effort to raise money for local programs allowing disabled children to participate in sports. Past fundraisers have netted more than $130,000 for the cause.

The event features a baseball tournament, with Atlanta Braves legend Tom Glavine throwing out the first pitch. Other scheduled festivities include a midnight kickball tournament, a silent auction, a screening of The Lego Movie and a cornhole tournament with a Big Green Egg as the top prize.

Visit coveringthebases.org for more information.

All events will take place at the Acworth Sports Complex, which is located at 4000 South Main Street.
