Thanks for baseball fundraising help

The Newport Babe Ruth League recently held its annual summer fundraiser event at O’Brien’s Pub in Newport.

It was a tremendous success, thanks to area merchants who provided prizes and merchandise for the raffles. In particular, I would like to recognize the many Jamestown merchants who supported this event.

Ali’s Run, the defending champion, is the Jamestown entry into the league. Thanks to this fundraiser, Ali’s Run, along with its league buddies, will enjoy another successful season of baseball.

Given the current economic situation, the league is truly appreciative for the tremendous donations. The Jamestown merchants are House of Pizza, Bay Voyage Inn, Robin Lee, Cathryn Jamieson Salon, McQuade’s Market, Secret Garden, Jamestown Designs, Spinnaker’s CafĂ©, Jamestown Hardware, Ace’s Pizza, Slice of Heaven, Conanicut Marina and Ken’s Barber Shop.

Thank you all.

Tony Rafanelli

Coach Ali’s Run
