CARSON WENTZ AO1 FOUNDATION CHARITY SOFTBALL GAME IN NORTH DAKOTA CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19
The Carson Wentz AO1 Foundation announces that the 2nd annual Carson Wentz AO1 Foundation Charity Softball Game and home run derby in North Dakota is cancelled because of the COVID-19 health situation. The AO1 Foundation announced in late 2019 that the event would be held on June 25, 2020, at Newman Outdoor Field.
“It’s never an easy decision to cancel something like this, but the health and safety of our supporters has always been our top priority,” said Carson Wentz, president of the AO1 Foundation. “We had such a great time hosting this game for the first time in Fargo last year, so hopefully everyone will be excited for it to return next year.”
The first Charity Softball Game, held on June 26, 2019, at Newman Outdoor Field, raised more than $200,000 to benefit the AO1 Foundation. A total of 4,428 fans witnessed 29 North Dakota State University football alumni compete in a home run derby and softball game.
