CANTON (CBS DETROIT) — Some local media personalities and law enforcement faced off against one another in a charity softball game to benefit the “Bonnell Foundation: Living with Cystic Fibrosis” on Saturday afternoon.

WWJ’s Laura Bonnell, who has two daughters with the disease that affects the lungs and digestive system, began the foundation a few years ago to help families and for research.

“We also do a lot of miscellaneous giving — people who either can’t pay their bills or need to house the family while they’re waiting for a lung transplant,” Bonnell said. “We also help them with the cost of staying at a hotel and we do give lung transplant grants as we because most of those are not covered by insurance and that’s a huge burden on families.”

The game was played at the Canton Sports Center at Victory Park on Michigan Avenue and raised over $6,000.
