Food, games, guest speakers and a home run derby against live softball pitching will go on throughout the event, which ends at 9 pm.
Admission is free and everyone receives five tickets upon entrance. Games and food will cost tickets and extra tickets will be available for purchase. Strike Out Cancer T-shirts will be on sale at $15 for one or $25 for two.
All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
Food items include - burgers, hotdogs and drinks and the games scheduled are KanJam, cornhole and kickball with the highlight of the evening coming in the derby. The amount of tickets to participant varies, but with each game also comes chances to win prizes.
The derby is set to start around 8 pm following several guest speakers. Tiger softball players will do live pitching as attendees buy chances to put one over the fence.
"Chelsae Osborn has been the organizer of this as we felt from a team standpoint we've all been touched in our lifetime by a family member or friend battling cancer," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "Many times there is not much anyone can do to help their loved one in the battle, but we can contribute to the research being done looking for a cure and a better way to combat this disease."
