An event to generate funds for medical expenses is planned Saturday, Oct. 12, at the ballfield near the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce Fairgrounds. The event was rescheduled due to inclement weather last weekend.

Organizers said Gary Hale was diagnosed with cancer and this spring was hospitalized with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and has paralysis.

The schedule calls for: softball tournament, 8 a.m.; car and bike show, as well as games and vendors, 11 a.m.; entertainment, 2 p.m.; paddle auction, 4 p.m.; and haunted hay ride, 6 p.m. Food will be available all day.
