Derby raises $9,000 for orphaned children

With a goal of $3,000, the "Take A Chance" Home Run Derby far exceeded expectations for helping Chance, Chelsea, and Christopher Regan. 

Overall, the event raised $9,000 for the orphaned children. For those that missed the event, and would like to make a donation. An account has been set up for the children at The First Bank in the kids' names to help with healthcare costs. 

The Regan children lost their mother and father in the July 4 homicide/suicide on Dixie Ave.
