Doraville hit a grand slam against Dunwoody Thursday, Oct 13 at a benefit softball game between employees from both cities to raise funds for I Will Survive, Inc., a local service agency for breast cancer survivors.
A raffle for a Big Green Egg grill package raised $2,108 that was then added to a $1,000 corporate contribution from Halpern Enterprises, Inc., bringing in a total contribution of $3,108 for the cancer survivor agency. Halpern was represented at the event by Jimmy Cushman and Halpern co-owner Carolyn Oppenheimer.
Played at Honeysuckle Park, the ball game was a whopping 18-5 win for the Doraville Firebirds softball team. Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman and Dunwoody Mayor Dennis Shortal led the team-friendly event
Thanks to Kari Lopez, Doraville Police Department, for creating the trophy for this first-time event. City Clerk Sherry Henderson was the lucky winner of the grill package valued at $1,000 that was generously donated by The Big Green Egg®, whose corporate headquarters are located in Doraville.
A special “thank you” is extended to all who bought raffle tickets, those city employees who participated in the ball game from both Doraville and Dunwoody, and to everyone who helped coordinate this worthwhile event to recognize Pink Ribbon Month for cancer survivors that runs through the month of October.
