BRIDGEWATER — Roughly 150 people participated in Playball for Miracles’ third Annual Miracle Night on Friday, June 28. The organization teamed up with the Somerset Patriots to raise money for the New Jersey Firefighters’ Mutual Benevolent Association’s Sandy Ground Project with a night of family fun and fireworks.
Somerset defeated the Long Island Ducks 4-2, and the night was completed with a fireworks show that could put most to shame. Miracle Night T-shirts were donated by All Hands Tees, owned by Elizabeth Firefighter Gary Haszko.
Playball for Miracles has raised approximately $13,600 for Children’s Specialized Hospital, the NJFMBA Sandy Ground Project, and a chosen family. Each year, Playball for Miracles donates funds to a different family that has a child with special needs who is a relative of a fireman or police officer.
According to founder and chief coordinator Erin Kelly-McGuinness, next year’s 10th anniversary of Playball for Miracles will include many surprises. The tournament is scheduled for May 3, 2014.
