Andy Weaver Wheelchair Softball Fundraiser
Hellertown Lower Saucon Little League invites area softball players to take part in a fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 11, to raise funds for a new wheelchair for coach Andy Weaver.
There will be open games starting at 10 a.m. at the Dimmick Park fields off Durham Street in Hellertown. Each game will last about an hour, with the last game played at 5 p.m.
Weaver has been a "motivational coach" for the 8/9 Eastern Lehigh Valley Softball at Saucon Valley team since April 2017. He is also assistant coach for the Upper Nazareth Clippers Senior 10th-12th grade football team and "goodwill ambassador" for the Nazareth High School theater group.
He needs to purchase a new wheelchair because the one he's using now "is falling apart."
Fees to participate are $10 per person per game, $15 for family of two, $20 for family of three and $25 for family of four or more. To register for a time slot,email call Alyssa Trudniak at 484-353-4317 or Amy Trudniak at 610-390-8956.
There also will be raffles, a 50/50 and snack bar. Volunteers are needed to help run the snack bar, with game discounts for those who chip in. Baked goods and food donations are also welcome.
All proceeds will go toward Weaver's wheelchair.
