A fundraising event will be held for the families of Bryant Western and Alijah Berry on November 11th at 7 pm in the Knox County High School gym. Guest speakers for the event will be current Alabama softball pitching coach and Edina native Lance McMahon, along with former Alabama standout pitcher Montana Fouts. Fouts says she’s looking forward to giving her time to a great cause.
Fouts adds being able to give back to children is one of her favorite aspects of playing softball.
Fouts is a native of Grayson, Kentucky, which has a population of just under four-thousand. She says her small town roots attract her to Edina.
Bryant Western has been hospitalized since January following an ATV accident while Alijah Berry was diagnosed with leukemia in the spring. Funds from the event will go towards both of their medical expenses. The event will feature several raffle items and a donation jar. Admission is ten dollars.
