Charlotte Hans Softball Challenge Set For Nov. 5

The 2016 Charlotte Hans Softball Challenge will take place Nov. 5 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Village Park in Wellington.

The Charlotte Hans Softball Challenge originated in 2009 to benefit Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Michael Hans’ wife, Charlotte, who battled breast cancer. Charlotte was not only a devoted deputy’s wife, but a loving mother of four. After a long battle, she passed away the following year.

In her memory, the Charlotte Hans Softball Challenge has become an annual event. Each year, PBSO employees or immediate family members are chosen to be beneficiaries of the event. Recipients are people who have been devastated by illness or catastrophic injury. This year’s recipients are Agent James Jordan and Deputy Carla Washington.

The softball challenge is comprised of teams of PBSO employees who play a two-game elimination softball tournament. The event is family orientated, offering bounce houses, music, food and raffles for everyone to enjoy.

The MammoVan from Boca Raton Regional Hospital will be making an appearance from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, visit or call (561) 955-4700 and select option 1.

Admission for adults is $10 and $5 for kids ages 7 to 12. Admission is free for children under age 7. Admission includes food, drinks and fun for the kids. For more information, e-mail or visit
