Help the Riptides get to Cooperstown!

Hi Family and Friends! Please consider helping the Riptides get to Cooperstown Dreams Park. The team is made up of 12 year old South Kingstown, Narragansett, and Cranston boys who have played baseball together several years on various town teams.

South County Riptides Team: Dillon Carney, Cameron Hassell, Logan Podedworny, Luke Waranis, Ed Wild, Ari Ahava, Matt Rocchio, Will Gardiner, Jack Healy, Joe Calvino, Cam Bissitt, Sean Gardner, Mike Morrison

Our team has the chance to attend Cooperstown Dreams Park in NY in August 2014. The boys will be playing competitive baseball with other teams from all over the United States. They will also be able to go to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the players will be inducted in the Youth Baseball Hall of Fame. It's an opportunity that will only come once in a lifetime at 12 years old and never again. That's right, never again!!

We are doing all sorts of local activities to raise the money we need to go but still have not reached our goal. As you know, this is a costly trip (approximately $1,600 per player) this includes entry fee and travel expenses. That is why we are reaching out to all of you... Our family, our friends, friends of friends:just about EVERYONE! We would be extremely grateful for any amount you donate to help support our team. No amount is too small... EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS!!!

Below is the link for Cooperstown if you would like to see what our boys are working towards. Again, thank you for helping our boys!
