Miracle League wraps up with year-end donations at banquet

The tenth anniversary season for the Miracle League of Amherstburg is now in the books.

The Miracle League held a year-end banquet Saturday afternoon at the Knights of Columbus Hall in McGregor where teams, coaches, parents and volunteers were welcomed for a meal, a dance and some fun.

One of the highlights was the playing of a new video from Mitch Bouchard of Red Cape Films. The new video showed action at the Miracle League of Amherstburg as well as testimonials from board members, players and parents.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to let other families know we exist,” said Michele Vigneux, a Miracle League parent and board member.

The video is also expected to assist in attracting new volunteers to the diamond every spring and fall when the Miracle League seasons are in action. Each Miracle League season lasts eight Saturdays and volunteers are regularly needed to ensure players have enough “buddies” and that the league runs safely and smoothly.

Vigneux also said the Miracle League of Amherstburg is “very, very lucky” as they get “generous support” from many organizations. Organizations that helped out at last Saturday’s banquet included the McGregor Columbian Club as well as the McGregor Columbian Squires as both groups donated $1,500 each.

We are thrilled to say that without a doubt our 9th Annual Miracle League Golf Tournament was a huge success!! We were blessed with beautiful weather, 135 Golfers, 76 Hole Sponsors, incredibly generous supporters including our Corporate sponsor Anchor Hydro, and amazing & dedicated volunteers! We are grateful to the hard-working staff at Sutton Creek Golf Course (thanks Cory & Jeff and staff!) who went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly for our tournament  
There are so many highlights from the day but some of the best moments were having Miracle League family members join us to golf, hearing the laughter and seeing the smiling faces of the golfers (many who have golfed for 9 years in a row at our tournament), and the overall good feeling that it was truly an enjoyable day shared by all involved. Everyone present was there to support the Miracle League of Amherstburg and what a tremendous feeling that was! Special thanks to Julien, Meghan & Max who added their own special touches to the day to make the day sparkle. 

August 17, 2019 will be our 10th Annual Miracle League Tournament. SAVE THE DATE! It's going to be our BEST tournament yet with lots to celebrate!!
