A little rain couldn’t stop PBCC supporters from making the trip to Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster on Saturday, June 21st! An overwhelming number of batters, volunteers, and fans came out to the 2nd Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer Home Run Derby of the season!
Our Statewide All-star sponsor was in full force at this derby! Emerald Asset Management, Inc. donated the stadium rental, hosted a silent auction, provided concession vouchers, and brought many to swing for the fences in an effort to “find a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to.” A big thank you to Emerald Asset Management, Inc.!
A batter from the team Donegal 16U Baseball, Jarod Kashner, earned one of five custom Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer winner bats with a score of 350 points! Three others won custom bats with scores of 350 points – Greg Gunter, Matt Odenthal, and John Furlong who hit two home runs! Nathan Nickel also took home a bat with a score of 335 points!
The title of Top Fundraiser was earned by the Wright Brothers. They impressed by fundraising over $1,900!
There’s still time to get involved this derby season! Grab your friends and family and come out to our last Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer Home Run Derby of the season at Jerry Uht Park in Erie on August 23rd! Come hit one out of the park to help us in our effort to represent and support breast cancer survivors across Pennsylvania.
