The money will go towards scholarships for art-based programs, as well as their Alzheimers Adult Day program, known as Generations.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — On Saturday, The Legacy Center held their second annual charity kickball tournament and Community Block at Calvary Hills. Twenty-four adult kickball teams were able to register to play in a fun, charity event that helped raise money for the center's Alzheimers Adult program known as Generations, as well as fund scholarships for their art-based programs. 

The day included a local celebrity team who played a team made up of law enforcement officers with the Huntsville Police Department. Sports Director Mo Carter was a leader on the celebrity team Saturday. Other celebrity members included Representative Laura Hall, Pastor Rev. Jeremiah Chester and Alabama State Representative Anthony Daniels. 

HPD ended up beating the local celebrities in the game by a final of 7-0.
