cancer, sickle cell disease or some other blood disorder. Embrace Kids Foundation offers unique programs and services that deliver a comprehensive and compassionate method of delivering care to families when they need it most – when their child has a catastrophic illness.
The Top Gun organization believes in teaching ours players the importance of giving back to its community for those whom are not as fortunate to play this great game of softball.
This past fall marked our 13th year of hosting our Charity Tournament for the Embrace Kids Foundation, formally known as the Institute for Children (Cancer Institute of New Jersey). The entire Top Gun organization would like to thank everyone involved in this effort. For those of you who don’t know about this tournament each fall teams from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts show their support by attending this tournament where all monies raised from entry fees, concession stand and donations go directly to the foundation. The money raised is used to help support Embrace Kids Winter Wonderland Holiday Party. In addition, Top Gun helps Embrace Kids with supplying food for their Thanksgiving luncheon. Without everyone’s kind support the donations could not be possible.
Over the past 13 years, Top Gun has donated over $120,000 to this great cause. If you would like more information on the Embrace Kids please go to www.embracekids.org or if your team would like to attend next year’s tournament please contact Tony Houck or Larry Yard.
Top Gun would like give a special thank you to Hillsborough Parks & Recreation who have donated fields for the Charity Tournament to play on. Their continuous support over the years have been greatly appreciated.
In addition, Top Gun would also like thank Darrow's Sporting Edge of Whitehouse Station for their donations over the years to the Charity Tournament. Darrow's Sporting Edge have shown their support to the charity fundraiser by supplying all official game balls for each competition.
