Memorial Day Tournament for Education
We’re proud to partner with Philadelphia Baseball Tournaments this Memorial Day weekend, for a second year in a row! Last year, over 40 teams competed to change lives through the power of education, raising over $3,500 for an on-campus sports facility in Malawi, Africa. This year, each team will fundraise to extend the lasting impact sports has on our youth’s education. Each Age Bracket Champion from the Memorial Day Tournament will donate $500 towards The Hamels Foundation’s mission. 100% of donations directly impact the lives of students in Malawi, Africa!
OF DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO OUR PROJECTS.
Because our co-founders, Cole and Heidi Hamels, underwrite all administrative expenses in association with The Hamels Foundation, 100% of all donations received go directly to support our mission.
Gary Hamels worked in public education as a district administrator for over 35 years, believing that all students should receive an equal education. With a love of golf, especially with his grandsons, and his daily walks, Gary’s goal was for all students to find a balance between academics and sporting activities.
Thank you for supporting our Gary Hamels Endowment program. Your donation will go towards the educational needs at local middle schools and high schools, as well as supporting cancer research trials.
