Help Out Elmora/Elizabeth NJ with Willamsport Cost

As I’m sure you’re all aware, a team from District 7 has won the Mid-Atlantic Region and is headed to Williamsport!    Elmora is one of the crown jewels of District 7, not because of their play on the field but their character off of it.  They have been a great example of how a league and its players should conduct themselves.  That was never more true than this past week in Bristol.  The DA was proud to tell us that he received multiple compliments about their personalities, their sportsmanship, their behavior but especially their ability to embrace the moment and have fun doing it.  

The legacy of Elmora LL is in the memory of a fallen NJ State Trooper, Thomas Hanratty (https://www.elmorayouth.com/Hanratty/hanratty.html).  The coaches, players and their families have embraced the emotion of being a part of a league that honors its fallen heroes.  Tommy Hanratty was a former Elmora LL player and long after he finished his days playing LL baseball, he gave back to the league that gave him so much as a child.  His brothers in blue have continued that tradition and the NJSP provide the mentoring many of these kids need.

We are asking for your help.  Elmora is located in Elizabeth which is an urban, blue collar town.  Many of the families struggle to make ends meet under normal circumstances.  I know many of you have leagues just like this.  Getting to Bristol, as great as it was for the kids, was a hardship for many of the families.  Williamsport will be even more taxing financially.  To that end, a GoFundMe page has been created to help raise the money needed to allow the families the opportunity to enjoy this and not have to feel the burden of paying for it.  They also are taking donations via mail.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that we want to be the best experience it could be for all those involved.  I ask that you do whatever you can to help achieve that goal.
