Family members of an Ainsworth child are hosting the 2nd Annual Players 4 Payton Slow Pitch Softball Tournament.  Five year old Payton Schultz has been living with a rare disease called HIDS which is a periodic fever disorder.  He is only 1 of 6 children in the United States and 1 of 200 people worldwide with the disorder.  Family members host the event to raise funds for medication and hospital expenses.  The day features a softball tournament, live band, food drive for HAACAP, kids carnival, and a home run derby with other kids events going on all day.  Concessions will also be served at the event.  Registration cost for teams is $120 per team, or $200 and all will receive Players 4 Payton T-shirts.  The fundraiser for Payton Schultz is Saturday, August 7 at the Riverside ball fields beginning at 7:30am.  For questions or to register, call Cassie Olson at 319-548-1379.
