Home Runs Hit for Daughter of Slain Woman

Fundraiser held in memory of Carlsbad woman Kathy Scharbarth


A unique fundraiser was held Saturday to benefit the daughter of a Carlsbad woman killed over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Kathy Scharbarth was kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day and her body was found the next day. Police arrested her ex-boyfriend Michael Robles, who she had filed a restraining order against only days before her murder.

Scharbarth's brother is a baseball hitting instructor at the Frozen Rope batting cages in Encinitas. Saturday all customers got to hit for free, but were asked to leave a donation.

Donations will go toward the “benefit and future” of Scharbarth’s 13-year-old daughter, who she left behind, the batting cage’s owner said.

Those who were unable to attend on Saturday but would still like to contribute can either stop by Frozen Ropes to leave a contribution that will be forwarded to the Scharbarth family, or mail checks directly to (include C/O Madison Scharbarth in the memo line):
