Kickball Association presents check to Upstate Cancer Center
LIVERPOOL, N.Y. -- A weekend of fun added up to big bucks for charity.
The Syracuse Adult Kickball Association presented a check for more than $2,400 to the Upstate Cancer Center on Sunday. The money was raised last weekend at the Syracuse Adult Kickball Association's Tournament Against Cancer. Fourteen teams took part, all helping raise the money.
Organizers said it was such a huge success because it's a cause that really hits home.
Stephanie Schlientz, Event Director said, “A lot of us have family members that have had cancer or died from cancer. So it really touched a lot of our hearts to do something for upstate and give them a lot of money."
The donations were raised through a combination of entry fees, raffles and a portion of the proceeds from concession sales.
