Brandywine Rocks Donate $3,000 to Ronald McDonald House
December 15, 2016
In the spirit of the Christmas season, coaches and players representing the Brandywine Rocks (18U) team that competes in the Del Val Big League Baseball Association, were honored to present $3,000 to Pam Cornforth, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. The donation represented one half of the proceeds from the John Snyder Memorial Baseball Tournament, which is played each Memorial Day weekend. Over the past 19 years the tournament has supported the Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia and provided over $90,000 in proceeds. Because Delaware teams competed throughout the year with Pennsylvania teams in the Del Val Big League Baseball Association and also participate in the Snyder Tournament, the donation is now being shared between the two RMH Houses that support families in our region. The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware provides rooms and meals to as many as 50 families each night who have children being cared for at A.I. duPont Hospital. Families are asked to donate $15 per night to help defray operating costs, but the average donation is only $4. The donation made by The Rocks will help cover the cost of 200 overnight stays by these families in need. The Brandywine Rocks were tournament runners up this past May, but we have always enjoyed participating and getting a chance to play the Championship game on West Chester University's Serpico Field. Presenting the check to Pam Cornforth are (left to right): David Bacher (manager), John Faulkner (coach), Trevor Jump, Justin Jump, Stefan Haroldson, Brian Karpinsky, and Bob Jump (BLL President).
