Charlotte Hans Softball Challenge originated in 2009 to benefit the wife of Sgt. Michael Hans. Charlotte, who was battling breast cancer which metastasized into brain cancer. Charlotte was a loving mother of four and a devoted and proud wife of a deputy sheriff. The event was a success and we were able to help the family in their time of need. Sadly, Charlotte lost her courageous battle the following year.
In memory and honor of Charlotte, The Charlotte Hans Softball Challenge has become an annual event benefiting a PBSO employee or immediate family member who has been devastated by illness or a victim of a catastrophic event. The softball challenge is comprised of teams of PBSO employees. The event is family orientated offering bounce houses, music, food and raffles for everyone to enjoy.
