Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr is hosting a celebrity softball game on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Reverchon Park in Dallas to raise awareness for domestic violence.

Carr will be joined by Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings, who held a rally against domestic violence a few months ago.

Fans can attend the event, which starts with a home run derby. Proceeds will be donated to the Carr Cares Foundation, Women Called Moses nonprofit and Elevate Life Church.

"I remember growing up and not having the opportunity to learn from and interact with professional athletes and coaches," Carr said. "Therefore, I wanted to allow football camp participants and fans attending the softball game to receive an opportunity that I never had while growing up."
