The Palestine American 8-and-under all-star team is Regional World Series bound.
The squad, which won the Dixie coach pitch District 6 All-Star tournament in Palestine in late June, finished second at the state tournament recently, booking a trip to Searcy, Ark., for the regional tournament, which kicks off July 20.
To help finance the trip, the team will be making several appearances around town in the next week, as well as hosting a chicken spaghetti delivery dinner.
The team will be at Brookshires Thursday taking donations, and the players will also be waiting tables a Mazzio’s Tuesday. All of the tips earned will go toward funding the trip.
The chicken spaghetti dinner will be delivered Wednesday, with orders open through Tuesday. Cost of the meal is $7 and includes chicken spaghetti, salad, bread and a dessert.
To place your order, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/text 903-724-2071. The deliveries will be made from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Wednesday, so it’s requested that a preferred delivery time be included with the order.
The team is also auctioning off a Diamond Rapture by Bow Tech hunting bow, complete with a fully rigged case and 18 arrows. Tickets are $5 per ticket or 5 for $20.
