Entertainment and community support for Jarren McTee will abound next weekend as the 12th annual softball tournament takes place.
Jarren, 10, was diagnosed at birth with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) after being deprived of oxygen during a traumatic delivery at birth.
HIE is defined as damage to the cells of the central nervous system from inadequate oxygen.
Jarren has been working hard all his life to develop the muscle control to hold his head up, sit up on his own and learn to walk and talk with his adaptive equipment. Funds raised from efforts such as the softball tournament go to help Jarren and his family with medical and equipment needs.
The weekend’s activities will kick off at 6 p.m. Friday, June 28 at the Spain Complex in Farmersville.
A barbecue dinner will be available for $10 a plate. Live music by Big Joe Willy, a silent auction, bounce houses and face painting will also be on tap along with opening ceremonies.
