"A Night of Comedy"
To benefit The Miracle League of Mercer County, was a
From the Desk of the Commish;
It's hard to put into words what a night like Friday means to this league - though as you all know, I never lack the effort to try. We raised an incredible $4,000 tonight for our league, but it's not just the money that makes a difference. It's the PEOPLE, the connection, that means much, much more. So instead of a speech, how about a simple - but immensely heartfelt - series of thank yous.
Thank you to the over 210 people in the room. We were PACKED.
Thank you to all of my families, both in attendence and in spirit at home, that so fully embrace this crazy extended family we call MLMC.
Thank you to my Board members, who year in and year out remain as passionate to this simple, yet important cause as they were more than 12 years ago when MLMC was only an idea yet to be achieved.
Thank you to the Rotary Club of Robbinsville Hamilton. I saw all you Rotarians in the seats, and buying 50/50s.
Thank you to my Hamilton Area YMCA co-workers - laser focused individuals that selflessly give back and support... without ever being asked or prompted.
Thank you to Heather Peoples, Jeff Peoples, and the tireless Don Snedeker with the Hamilton Career Firefighters Foundation. Don, I am so glad I took that phone call with you while I sat in that ski lodge in Vermont back in February. From all of MLMC to you, you are the man!
Thank you Joey's Little Angels, for your matching contribution. Your generosity is overwhelming.
Thank you to my small army of volunteers and coaches. You give so much of yourselves to our kids, a value that has no price tag. I am just a lonely cheerleader without you all.
And thank you to my amazing players. You teach me so much about pure joy, and reinvigorated my love for baseball in ways I never could have imagined before.
Nights like last Friday give me hope; they are proof positive that - in a world where we see and hear so much sadness, negativity and divisiveness - we can cut through the nonsense and get right to the core of the good in humanity.
And in case you need it, there are over 210 pieces of evidence in this picture to support my point.
Welcome to Our Field of Dreams:
Celebrating over 10 years of miracles!!
In August of 2015, the Trenton Thunder honored and helped celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Miracle League of Mercer County during their HOPE Week. Players, coaches, friends, and family were invited to spend the day, and take the field, at Arm & Hammer Park.
