Phoenix House Academy of Long Island joined in the fun at the 64th Annual Artists and Writers Charity Softball Game at Herrick Park in East Hampton on August 25th. Our clients and staff worked the concession stand for food and refreshments; the Academy is one of the beneficiaries from this very exciting, star-studded annual tradition. Players included celebrities from the world of journalism and entertainment, including Mike Lupica, Carl Bernstein, Mark Feuerstein, Juliet Papa, and Marty Lyons, among this year’s group. This year’s contest resulted in extra innings with the Writers winning in the 10th by a score of 12-11, thanks to a home run by screenwriter Bill Collage. We are most grateful to Leif Hope and Debby McEneaney, the organizers of this Hamptons tradition, for their loyal friendship and support over the years.
