Wiffle for Kids

Last weekend marked our 9th Annual Wiffle for Kids tournament with Wallkill East Rotary and the YMCA of Middletown.

This annual event pits corporations against one another in a uniquely-modified wiffle ball tournament- and we had a TON of new and returning teams this year!

My thanks to Jack Smith of William A. Smith & Sons Insurance and (BGC Board member) Steve Plain of Urmston, Forshee, Plain & Amelio CPAs for each sponsoring a BGC team! Our Liberty Club kids were all too excited to come down and play for the day, and our Adult BGC team was comprised of staff, former Club kids and their families and even my dad, Phil Eggleton! While neither team was victorious, it was a fun day for everyone!

We also enjoyed another successful Family Fun Fest during Wiffle, where our Clubs and several other community groups put up booths and offer free activities for kids of all ages! In addition to bean bag tosses and basketball challenges, our Clubs offered free face painting, temporary tattoos and we made Mardi Gras and Alien masks, too!

This annual event raises $15,000, one-third of which is donated by the Wallkill East Rotary to support our Clubs efforts in Orange County. On behalf of our Board of Directors and our Club kids, I’d like to thank Rotary for this fantastic event and their generosity!
