CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS RAISE MONEY FOR DREAM RIDERS
Wednesday, June 13, 2012

 
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - In one month, Lexington County Detention Center correctional officers with the Lexington chapter of the South Carolina Correctional Association will conduct the chapter’s first annual charity softball tournament on Friday, July 13 at the Pine Grove Sports Complex, 701 Old Barnwell Road, West Columbia. All proceeds will benefit Dream Riders, a local non-profit group that conducts an equestrian program for persons who have mental or physical disabilities.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts encourages citizens to participate in the softball tournament and support Dream Riders. The cost for the tournament is $135 per team. In addition, a home run derby will be conducted, with each person who enters the derby paying an additional fee of $10 for a chance to hit a home run with 10 softballs.

The registration deadline for the softball tournament is Thursday, June 29, Metts said. Citizens who want to register for the softball tournament or who want additional information about the tournament can email Sgt. Scott McDermott at smcdermott@lcsd.sc.gov or contact McDermott at the Detention Center Booking Desk at (803) 785-2740 or (803) 785-2741.

Dream Riders conducts an equestrian program for persons with mental or physical disabilities, including lessons in all aspects of horse riding as well as all aspects of caring for horses, Metts said. Participants also receive training that can enable them to participate in horse riding competitions.

The softball tournament reflects the Sheriff’s Department mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County, Metts said.
