This Fall, the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields will be the place to be on Saturday October 14th as teams step up to the plate in support of the 2017 Wiffle Ball Tournament and Walk. The second annual event is being held in support of the individuals served by the Butler County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
Ohio Valley Goodwill is a proud sponsor of this year’s Wiffle Ball Tournament and Walk and has a team in training ready to take the field on Saturday morning. “Team Goodwill is busy getting ready for the big Wiffle Ball Tournament,” said Chelsea Combs, Coach and Community Supports Manager. “We are looking forward to supporting this exciting event which will benefit the individuals we serve,” added Combs.
Ohio Valley Goodwill is a long time partner of the Butler County Board of DD and provides training and employment services for many of the people the Board serves. The organization is also a member of the planning committee for the Fall fundraiser.
Now that Fall has arrived, the planning committee is encouraging players, walkers, sponsors and volunteers to get signed up as soon as possible to see how you can join Goodwill in Stepping Up to the Plate in support of citizens with disabilities in Butler County. You can join Goodwill and sign up as a team for the Wiffle Ball Tournament; join the walk; donate a basket for the Silent Auction; or become a Sponsor of the second annual event.
