Help East Hartford Little League
We are the Volunteers of the East Hartford Little League and tonight our main concession stand at Gorman Park was robbed. The thieves took kitchen equipment used to make the food we sell during baseball games as well as food, drinks, and snacks. They also stole the money from the cash register in the stand. Our community is at a huge loss.
Our EHLL Baseball community is made up of Volunteers and among those are parents, coaches, umpires and more. No one is paid to be out there on the fields or behind the counter at the stands. We do it because we love our community and our kids.
The break in at the stand at Gorman Park, puts our League at a huge loss.
The estimated loss due to this break in is over $700 and with the funds that are left in the league now, we can't get back to where we were without some help.
We are hoping to raise at least $1000 to replace the equipment, food, drinks and money that were taken tonight.
Help us, help our youth. Our boys and girls work hard practicing anywhere from 1-2 nights a week with sometimes 1-3 games in a week throughout Spring, Summer and Fall Ball. Without these concession stand we can't provide a quick meal or snack during the games. The funds raised in the stands generate the means to buy new uniforms along with new equipment when needed and countless other necessities for the League. The stands are an integral part of our baseball community. We need them.
Any donation is greatly appreciated. We know and understand that times are tough. If you can't donate monetarily, please say a prayer and share, share, share. Word of mouth is the best way to get us to our goal.
Thank you everyone and anyone who is compelled to help in any way, shape or form. It is tremendously appreciated and we thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts.

Just need to clarify one point in this. The pressbox at Mcauliffe was burnt down over the winter this year, not the concession stand. It still has yet to be rebuilt today, for what I was told was lack of funds. Please donate as the concession stands are a major fundraiser for the EHLL and help keeps the cost of registration down and also helps with the purchase of needed equipment.
