WR baseball benefit is May 14

At The Valley Club

To raise money for its summer baseball programs for youth ages 13-18, the Wood River Baseball Association has scheduled its third annual baseball benefit for Saturday, May 14 at The Valley Club.

The fundraiser includes a nine-hole golf tournament starting at 2 p.m. May 14, followed by a cocktail hour, dinner, raffle and live auction. There will be prizes for tournament participants and a wide array of auction items.

Supervised by Wood River High School varsity baseball coach Lars Hovey, the summer baseball program features two 13-year-old prep teams, and two 14-15 year old teams playing in a sanctioned Babe Ruth league. In all, the teams will play 150 games.

From these teams, one Select 13-year-old prep team and one Select 14-15 year-old team will represent the area in district and possibly regional and national playoffs.

In addition, there are plans for just one American Legion "A" team for youngsters ages 15-18. Last year Wood River fielded "AA" and "A" American Legion teams, which offered tougher competition at "AA" but spread the limited Legion roster a little thin.

To supplement player fees, the benefit is needed to help pay transportation and lodging costs, tournament and umpire fees, uniform and equipment expenses, and coaches’ salaries.

Cost is $135 per person for the golf tournament and dinner. Other levels of contribution are $540 for a team sponsorship, $100 for hole sponsorship, $45 for the dinner/auction only, or $2,500 for tournament or dinner co-sponsorship.

Donations of auction and raffle items are welcome, too. Contact Larry Lloyd at 726-2870 or buy tickets from any board member—Walt and Jenny Femling, Pete and Cheryl Kramer, Sheryl Fullmer, Bob and Becky Dittmer, John and Nicola Brashears, or Steve and Joan Anderson.
