On October 18, 2014, members of the vintage base ball community will be participating in the 2nd annual Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Arts, to raise money for breast cancer research and to fund art education in inner city schools. Four games will take place at the beautiful Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, featuring teams from all over New England. All money raised will go to breast cancer research and funding art projects at the Arlington School in Lawrence MA.
Jan’s Pitch for Breast Cancer and the Arts celebrates Jan Sheehy- a dedicated art teacher and mother of Essex Base Ball Club players Brian and Chris Sheehy- who lost her battle with breast cancer in April of 2013. In 2013 we raised over $6,000 that was donated to breast cancer research and the Janice Sheehy Art Fund that helped send six Arlington School students to a summer art camp.
We are currently looking for raffle items and appreciate any donations.
