Phoenix House Academy on Long Island joined the fun while volunteering at the 66th Annual Artists and Writers Charity Softball Game at Herrick Park in East Hampton on August 16. Our clients and staff helped with the early set-up on the field and concessions areas, as well as serving food and refreshments. Our 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 former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly serving as umpire, Carl Bernstein, Mike Lupica, Mort Zuckerman, Lori Singer, former NY Yankees slugger Jim Leyritz, and Ann Liguori among this year’s group. This year’s contest resulted in the Artists winning by a score of 14-8. We are very grateful to Leif Hope and Debby McEneaney, the organizers of this Hamptons tradition, for their loyal friendship and support over the years.
