(Victor Valley)– There will be a duel in the desert as teams led by San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon and Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Robert Lovingood square off in a charity softball game before the start of the High Desert Mavericks’ playoff game on Sunday, Sept. 11.
On the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the event will honor the United States military in addition to First Responders and volunteers who worked on the recent Pilot and Blue Cut fires.
“It’s a chance to enjoy the great American pastime and to honor some great Americans,” Supervisor Lovingood said. “This is a tangible way local residents can say ‘thank you’ to our outstanding First Responders, support the Sheriff’s local youth programs and have a little fun.”
Three dollars from every ticket sold will go to High Desert Police Activities Leagues in support of youth programs.
“I can’t think of a better way to honor the past and present American heroes,” Sheriff McMahon said, “We are so grateful to our residents for their continued support.”
Gates open at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, with the “Duel in the Desert” celebrity game at 4 p.m. The Mavericks playoff game begins at 5:05 p.m.
Business and sponsorship packages are available, starting at $90. Donated tickets will be given to First Responders.
