A softball tournament will be held at Astoria Middle School Saturday and Sunday as a fund-raiser for the three daughters of Krysta Schraeder, of Hammond, who died March 29. Concessions will be available.

Home-run derbies and a cardboard box derby for children will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday. A raffle, featuring a quilt, cash, jewelry, planters and gift certificates and more will conclude Sunday. Tickets are four for $1 or 25 for $5.

The cardboard box derby is for children 6 to 8 and 9 to 12. They will slide down a hill in a cardboard box. Entry fee is $2. Home-run derbies for men and women cost $5 and the pot will be split 50/50, with the winners taking home 50 percent and the rest going to the memorial fund.
