An incredible evening of fund raising and entertainment was held on Nov. 22/17.  A number of St. Clair College Marketing students combined their efforts to raise funds for the Miracle League of Amherstburg.  The event was well attended by many from the community including the many of our own Miracle League players and their family members.  It was wonderful to have the players & families be a part of the night!

A huge thank you to the students for their significant efforts in creating a truly successful event on our behalf.  We look forward to having the students come out to the Miracle League this Spring so all of the players and families can thank these students for their efforts and generosity in choosing to support our Miracle League.

The Miracle League of Amherstburg held its annual golf tournament last Saturday afternoon with it attracting more golfers than ever before.

“We had more than a full house,” said Michele Vigneux, a board member and publicity director for Miracle League. “We’ve had to turn away more than a few teams. It’s a good problem to have.”

The total amount raised from the tournament won’t be known for a few weeks, according to Vigneux, but she said they were aiming to raise over $10,000. She said the proceeds from this year’s tournament will go towards the installation of a wheelchair accessible swing at the accessible playground next to the Miracle League diamond.

“We’re hoping, if we can raise enough money, that we can get it installed this fall,” she said. “That’s the goal.”

The swing, known as a Liberty Swing, costs $48,000 though the league has received $8,000 in cash donations and $17,500 in in-kind services. The remaining $22,500 comes from the Miracle League’s funding, which includes proceeds from such events as the golf tournament.
