We'd like to express a heartfelt thank you to all those that joined us Saturday night at the Billiards Café in Ayer for the "Cooperstown or Bust" event benefitting the Harvard Hit Dogs.

This local group of Little League baseball players is raising funds to defray the cost of competing in a National tournament against other All-Star baseball teams this summer in Cooperstown, NY, home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Nearly two hundred adults and children showed up on a bitterly cold night to support these kids and encourage them to chase their dreams.

An exciting raffle and silent auction complimented good food, billiards, and the opportunity for families to enjoy a great community social activity.

Bromfield's new head baseball coach, Fred McDonald and assistant coach, Mike DiPietro, were present to introduce themselves to Harvard's baseball families.

Thanks to your generous support, the fundraiser was an enormous success and we are much closer to realizing our goals.

We'd also like to acknowledge the businesses that helped make this event possible:

Billiards Café, Nashoba Vision, Wedgewood Pines Country Club, Sorrento's, All-Star Equipment, Market Basket, Triple Play Batting Cages, Pediatric Dentistry, Burton's, Panera, Chili's, Texas Roadhouse, Starbucks, The Sports Hub, British Beer Company, Dovetail Bat Company, and Plug Design.

We look forward to sharing our Cooperstown experience with all of our supporters. We are truly humbled by the overwhelming support from our community.

Future donations can be made through our website at www.HarvardHitDogs.com.
