Every summer, WorkSource Auburn’s Jeanne Lenz pulls together a multi-agency team of softball enthusiasts to plan the annual Combined Fund Drive Softball Tournament in Auburn.

It all came together on Aug. 26 at Brannan Park. Mayor Nancy Backus threw out the first pitch.

Teams from Washington’s Employment Security Department, various WorkSource offices and the Departments of Social and Health Services and Corrections competed for the title. Each team chose a charity, and the winning team donated the biggest piece of the funds raised to its charity of choice. In all, the event raised $1,566 for charities across the state.

The Department of Corrections’ winning team donated $500 to a variety of charities.
