Teams and Sponsors Needed
The tournament committee also is seeking local businesses to become sponsors of the Softball Classic. Sponsorship dollars help offset the costs of operating the tournament and allow all monies raised to go directly towards the reward fund. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor can contact Christine Foley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The inaugural event in 2009 helped raise $10,000. “The overwhelming support of the community was amazing,” said Christine Foley, Stephen Spina’s sister. “We couldn’t have asked for a better first event and we hope it’ll be even better this year.”
The Spina family hopes that increasing the reward will encourage someone to come forward with information about this crime. Mr. Spina was found murdered in his Richbell Road apartment on September 17, 2007. His murder remains unsolved.
