LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

The community is remembering one of its own this weekend as the annual Sara Softball tournament begins.

Sara Hougom was a Western Technical College student who was shot and killed in her apartment in 2013. Friends and family created the tournament in Sara's memory, and to help raise money for violence awareness and prevention in La Crosse.

Last year the tournament raised more than $1,200, and organizers are looking to double that amount this year.
