Softball tournament raises money for family of Niles crash victims


The Community came out Saturday to Support a Niles family who lost two of their young daughters in a car accident a few weeks ago.  A Softball tournament was held in Buchanan to raise money for the family of Julianna Brown and Sophia and Penelope True.  Julianna and Sophia were killed in the accident and Penelope is still recovering.  Saturday between 20 and 30 softball games were played in for them and over $2,000 was raised.  Event organizer Mike Kromer said, "I hope it gives them a sense of everybody's here for them.  Everybody's ya know we'll do anything we can in the community to help em out and if it takes any burden off them financially then mission accomplished."
