Softball game, cookout to raise scholarship funds on Oct. 14

Sep 11, 2017

The Joseph X. Vasconcelos Memorial Scholarship Foundation will host a softball game fundraiser and cookout on Oct. 14

The event takes the place of the foundation's annual memorial baseball tournament, which was originally scheduled for this summer but was cancelled due to rain.

The event will raise money for the scholarship fund that was formed in memory of Vasconcelos, a 2006 graduate of Wareham High School who loved baseball. He was killed in a car accident in 2009 at age 21.

The softball game starts at 11 a.m. at Decas Field. A cookout will be held at the Elks Club, 2855 Cranberry Highway, from 1 to 5 p.m. Raffle tickets, sweatshirts, T-shirts, hats and other merchandise will be on sale and a DJ will provide music.

Donations may be sent to: Joseph X. Vasconcelos Memorial Scholarship Fund. Attention: Roseann DeGrenier, 2667 Cranberry Highway, Wareham, MA 02571. For more information, email:
