The Northern Virginia Wiffle® Ball World Series (NVWWS) returns to Fairfax County for its 21st Annual competition on August 6 at Waters Field in Vienna. For the past decade, the 2-Young-Foundation (2YF), a non-profit foundation dedicated to benefitting Brain Cancer Research in the memory of former Vienna resident Brian Bedell, has hosted this recognizable community event. This year, the Joe Cassella Foundation is now the proud sponsor of this local tournament.
The Joe Cassella Foundation looks to continue the great tradition of donating the proceeds of this event to families in the Northern Virginia area who are in need of financial assistance to care for an ill child. Sponsors dedicated to supporting the local community while contributing to this tax-deductible charity are greatly needed!
The NVWWS will be an all‐day event on August 6 that will kick‐off at 8:00am with team check‐in, and opening ceremonies beginning at 9:00 am. The day will be filled with Wiffle® Ball games from young and new to old and experienced with plenty of food, fun, and even a silent auction. The first pitch will take place at 10:00 am, with the championship game being held at 5:00 pm, followed by an awards ceremony complete with trophy presentation for the winners. Young children in attendance can experience “Kids World”, open through the duration of the event, where Ronald McDonald will be a special guest, along with face painting, a moon bounce, as well as arts & crafts.
Ball players of all ages and skill levels are welcome, as four different leagues are set to include 48 teams, divided by league: Little League, Minor League, Major League and Masters League, as well as toddler fields for the 6 and under players. NVWWS player registration is now open and teams can sign up on the JCF website (http://JoeCassellaFoundation.org/Wiffle). The site also provides information about corporate and team sponsorships, numerous volunteer opportunities, and much more!
The Joe Cassella Foundation’s mission is to provide financial assistance for medical expenses to families of children who are ill in the Washington D.C. Metro area. This organization was born from the loss of an amazing man and inspired by the overwhelming support his family received throughout their journey. To find out more, go to www.JoeCassellaFoundation.org
