Horsham, PA; September 30, 2010- On Saturday September 18, 2010, Gateway Funding Diversified Mortgage Services and seven other area financial institutions competed in the 22nd annual Bankers Baseball Bash for Charity which raised $9,000 for needs in our community.
This year’s beneficiaries were Erica Mundt, a 3-year old with acute lymphoblastic leukemia; Sarah Batalka, a 29 year-old with mitochondrial, a rare form of muscular dystrophy; and The Pride of Quakertown, a Non- Profit organization that is dedicated to giving back to the community by bringing together the residents of Quakertown and its surrounding communities in the playful, fun environment of sports and leisure activities. The tournament is a Round Robin event, culminating with a championship game. More than 150 people participated this year, including employees and family members of employees.
The competing financial institutions included: First Niagara, First Savings Bank, Gateway Funding Diversified Mortgage Services, Harleysville Savings Bank, Merck Sharp & Dohme Federal Credit Union, Meridian Bank, Quakertown National Bank, and Univest. This year’s hard fought championship game was won by Harleysville Savings Bank who received a trophy and the bragging rights for one year.
The Bankers Baseball Bash took place from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. at B. Earl Druckenmiller Complex in Sellersville. The Bankers’ Baseball Bash Committee has been in place for more than 20 years and has raised more than $160,000 for charities. According to a local newspaper, a committee decides on which area individuals are most deserving of the monetary awards. In order to raise money, each competing team pays an entry fee, raffle tickets are sold and donations are solicited from locals who wish to sponsor the event.
Gateway Funding Diversified Mortgage Services was thrilled to participate in the charity event and plans on doing so for years to come. “It was a great day filled with fun and camaraderie and an excellent way to give back to our community” said a Gateway Funding participant. Gateway Funding believes strongly in philanthropy and does so in a variety of ways.
