For the third consecutive year, the losing team will have to man a charity car wash. The Car Wash raises money for the Sumter County Little League Baseball Scholarship Program, which assists children financially, whose families can't afford little league registration fees.
This year's Car Wash will be held on Saturday, November 12th from 10 AM to 3 PM at the parking lot separating the GSW Baseball and Softball fields. The program is asking for $3 per car, and they will also be taking donations. All proceeds will go straight to the Sumter County Little League Baseball Scholarship Program.
