Schreiber’s Softball Weekend Hits a Homerun! Raises over $53,000 for Children with Special Needs

(LANCASTER, Pa.) – Despite stormy weather forcing the Center to reschedule Friday night’s games, 32 teams and close to 450 players still came out the weekend of June 1-3 to support Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center’s 30th Annual Softball Weekend, raising $53,554 for children with special needs. The event took place at Lancaster County Central Park and Froelich Park, Mountville, with the 2012 Ambassadors and their families cheering on the players!

Sunday’s 3rd annual tournament play brought 10 highly competitive teams out to the ballpark. Team Rangers and Team Ewell Trucking battled it out for the 2012 title in the final game at Clipper Stadium on Monday, June 4th. Ewell Trucking pulled ahead early and took home the winner’s trophy, baseball caps and a skybox at an upcoming Barnstormers’ game.

The top fundraising award was once again given to Team Manheim Struggling Farmers who contributed over $17,000-—up almost $3,000 from 2011! Their support and enthusiasm for Schreiber Pediatric continues to grow year-to-year and the Center is thankful for their sincere dedication.
