The event was held Nov 23-25, 2012 with the Hennesseys team winning the Division I title and the Killer Bees won the Division II title and Frank Daly was the recipient of the 2012 “Unsung Hero” award.
The real winners were the players and people who contributed as we exceeded our goal and presented a check for $6,650 to Feeding America along with contributing 350 pounds of food.
An excerpt from a letter From Thomas Mantz Feeding America CEO:
As we approach Christmas on Tuesday, I hope this finds everyone with family and loved ones! We received a great ‘Thank You’ letter from Thomas Mantz, CEO for Feeding America of Tampa Bay letting us know that our $6,650 and 350 pounds of food contribution led directly to 45,850 meals for those who would have otherwise gone without.
Quoting him, “He said with the help of many others just like us, they are able to distribute 33 million meals to our community. And, since one in four children in our community is hungry today, our gift allowed them to feed many children, for which there is no greater good”.
