2017 Tournament Results
Plenty of people braved the sweltering heat Sunday to participate in the 13th annual Wiffle for Cancer tournament to benefit the Nick Currey Fund for pediatric cancer research.
Over 100 participants competed in an all-day, double elimination tournament that culminated in a thrilling 4-3 victory for three-time champions Jerry D’Andrea and his team “Lavar Ball’s Ego”. With two outs and the bases loaded, D’Andrea ranged far to his left to scoop the tournament-clinching groundout and prevail over rival “Friends Wiff Benefits” and their captain Will Leonard.
Over $20,000 was raised between registration fees, donations and sponsorships from local businesses and private individuals–including a generous donation from Michael Feeney’s Best Day Ever Inc.
“In addition to a day of fun and friendly competition, the event brings attention to our foundation and a very important cause” said Ralph Currey, “we want to thank everyone who participated, our donors, our volunteers and in particular RHS DECA and their supervisors Karen Mendez and Sean Kase.”
