For the third straight season, UC Davis softball will host its annual Team Sammie Bunny Drive on April 18th. Taking place throughout that day's doubleheader against the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos, fans from either team are encouraged to donate a new bunny, or stuffed animal, at the entrance of La Rue Field. 

All stuffed animals received will be donated to local children's hospitals in memory of Samantha "Sammie" Hartsfield.

Before passing at the age of 12 to Osteosarcoma, Hartsfield bravely battled Osteosarcoma for nearly three years. Created when she noticed that local hospitals ran out of comforting plush toys after the holiday season, Sammie's Bunny Drive is intended to bring a smile to children, like herself, in the form of a cuddly stuffed animal friend.
