Charlie’s Angels Charity Softball Tournament Set for Saturday, August 14, 2010

Comments Off

If you are in Forsyth County tomorrow, Saturday, August 14th, please participate in Charlie’s Angels, a charity softball tournament to benefit the family of Charlie Winters.

Charlie was traveling with his parents to visit his grandmother June 30th when an oncoming vehicle struck their minivan on a two-lane road in Alabama. The three year-old Forsyth County boy passed away as a result of severe brain injuries sustained during the collision. Charlie’s parents were also injured during the crash. His father, Junior Winters, suffered a crushed ankle in the wreck and continues to use a wheelchair while healing.

His mother, Grey Winters, remembers Charlie as the most giving, gentle child who “would hand over his favorite toys to other kids and say, ‘here you go.’” This generous and compassionate spirit inspired Charlie’s parents to donate his organs to allow a 1 year-old to live after a successful complete kidney transplant.

Proceeds from the Charlie’s Angels Charity Softball Tournament will go towards the family’s medical and funeral costs. The team entry fee is $100, and the first games start at 9:00 a.m. at Central Park. To register, please e-mail Crystal Forrester at clynnforrester@yahoo.com or call (770) 654-5736. If you cannot attend, please make a donation to Charlie’s memorial fund.
