Rich Williamson, president of the Verona Baseball & Softball League, had some help presenting some big checks to the Verona Children’s Fund at the last Town Council meeting.
Three years ago, VBSL started a home run derby challenge in which S.J. Carney Roofing, a company that Williamson is affiliated with, would donate $10 for each home run hit during the spring/summer season. This year, the VBSL matched the amount, and the Verona Mayor’s Charity matched that match. In the end, $1,400 was donated to the Verona Children’s Fund this year, more than both of the previous years combined.
Some of the many home run hitters were on hand for last week’s ceremony, and helped with the checks. The big sluggers include Kayla Bachan, Nikolai Bujnowski, Nick Coppola, Christian Dionisio, Andrew Emanualidis, Luke Gaccione, Will Gaccione, Carlie Goldstein, Nick Gonzalez, Geena Klinger, Ben Mackey, Andrew Meyer, Sean Mulligan, Tommy Mulligan, Robert Sposato, Quinn Zebrowski and Zander Zebrowski
