Afton Prater to sing Anthem at Richard Sherman event

Emerging Kitsap-based country singer-songwriter Afton Prater will sing the National Anthem at the July 19 Richard Sherman Celebrity Softball Tournament at Safeco Field.

It’s the third annual edition of the event, which is described thusly on Sherman’s Web site:AftonSherman

“Join Richard Sherman and an entourage of local and national celebrities as they take to the diamond to showcase their softball skills for the 3rd annual Richard Sherman Celebrity Softball Game! More than 22,000 fans attended last year’s game, which featured stars including Kobe Bryant, Russell Wilson, and Seattle rapper Macklemore. This event promises to be a fun, family affair and a one of a kind experience for all attendees while raising support and awareness for charitable causes. A portion of the proceeds of this event will go to Richard Sherman’s Blanket Coverage Family Foundation as well as other local charities. This year’s game is destined to be bigger and better than last year!”
