Waldoboro — The 5th Annual Robert Soper Remembrance Tournament was held Aug. 4 and 5. The coed, double-elimination softball tournament is held to raise funds for Waldoboro/Friendship Little League and Maine Behavioral Health's Knox/Lincoln County Crisis Services.

This year's tournament drew support of many businesses, which donated in support of the homerun derby, with 64 homeruns hit, and in support of a business donation challenge. In total this year, $6,659 was raised and split evenly between the two organizations.

Representatives from Waldoboro/Friendship Little League and Maine Behavioral Health met with tournament organizers Natasha Wallace and Jessica Sproul to receive their checks. Maine Behavioral Health was also presented with a framed T-shirt from this year's event, which focused on mental health awareness.
