Baseball star Jose Canseco will lend his skills to the Aldergrove Days Softball Tournament

Jose Canseco stars in Aldergrove charity softball event

Andy Bhatti will be raising awareness of childhood sexual abuse as well as fundraising for Survivors Supporting Survivors

Baseball’s heavy hitter Jose Canseco is 52 and retired but he can still drive a ball out of the park.

He will prove it in Aldergrove on June 11 as part of the Straight Out Of Hastings team playing in the Aldergrove Days Softball Tournament at Parkside Elementary’s ball diamonds.

He’s one of the celebrities Andy Bhatti is bringing to the event, in a fund-raiser for the Survivors Supporting Survivors charity.

The charity helps fund counselling for victims of childhood abuse, who may otherwise resort to opiate addictions to numb the pain.

Bhatti is a survivor and has been “clean” for ten years.

Further information will be published in a future edition of The Star but the public may also call Bhatti at 604-309-1573.
