Beckley Little League holding fundraiser

Beckley Little League will hold its second annual Cash Club Fundraiser Saturday, Feb. 18. The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Beckley Moose Lodge.

The purpose of the event is to raise money for improvements to the Beckley Little League Complex on Eisenhower Drive.

“The Beckley Moose Lodge has offered to help by hosting the event for the second year,” said BLL board member Gary Poling. “Last year’s event provided a night of entertainment and socializing while helping a great cause.”

Tickets are available for two people at a cost of a $100 donation. The tickets cover dinner for both people, and several door prizes will be awarded.

“The money rasied will all go toward further improvements to the fields and complex,” Poling said. “Fencing, structural improvements to dugouts and scorekeeping facilites and improvements to bleachers are just a few needs.”

The league also hopes to add batting cages, and pay down on a loan that was necessary to install up-to-date lighting.

Thanks to the upgrades that were made last year, Beckley was able to host the District 4 and state 11-12-year-old Little League tournaments.

“The tournament was a great success and the upgrades were well received,” Poling said.

The Beckley facility is now being considered for the West Virginia Girls Little League Championships for all age groups this summer.

Anyone interested  in attending the dinner and drawing can contact Kip Buchanan, Greg Lane, Kevin Reedy, Phil Norman, Ed Mullins or any Little League volunteer or board member. Also, anyone interested in making a donation but not attending the dinner, is greatly appreciated.

“We want to thank all those individuals who helped with the dinner, fundraisers and work on our complex last year,” Poling said. “Hopefully, we can make this year another great year for our Beckley Little League. Our goal is to make our league and facility one that we can continue to be proud of, and promote Beckley as we did this past year with hosting the boys Little League state tournament.”

    Finally, warmer weather has arrived to the Mountain State. I’m told, it’s socially acceptable to be late nowadays and there is even a term for it — being fashionably late. Of course, I have also been told that camo is the new black in fashion. I don’t care much for tardiness, or for fashion for that matter, but I am perfectly content with the weather forecaster’s report as of late. And if wearing camouflage is trendy, I will fit in just nicely at any social gathering.
