Here are a couple of
amazing kids who have been helped
by the Chance Crawford
spring of 1981 the Chance Crawford Trust Fund Committee started the
Annual Chance Crawford Benefit Softball Tournament. The purpose of
the event was to help Chance with the expenses of his education, the
renovation of his home and physical therapy due to his spinal cord
injury. After Chance graduated from college, he was elected Clerk of
the Circuit Court for the City of Salem and the Chance Crawford
Committee decided to take the proceeds from the tournament and put
the money back into the community.
Starting in 1991, the tournament proceeds have been given to
handicapped and needy individuals, donated as college scholarships,
and presented to many other worthy causes. Since then the tournament
has raised close to $325,000.00. If you would like any additional
information about scholarships please contact Eric O'Brien at the
James I. Moyer Sports Complex.
The Chance Crawford Benefit Softball Tournament is the first
tournament in history to offer teams the opportunity to earn
World, National, and State berths in NSA, ASA and USSSA for one
tournament entry fee!!!
