Stephen Spina Softball Classic makes its fourth appearance
July 13, 2012 by Mark
The softball classic is an event that has been organized by the friends and family of Stephen Spina, a 36-year-old postal delivery worker who was found murdered in his apartment in September 2007. Nearly five years on, his murder remains unsolved, so the event is being staged in the hope of raising a reward that might encourage someone to come forward with information. CrimeStoppers New York is also involved in the event, which has so far helped to raise the reward to $30,000. The money will also be used in other ways to help with the capture and conviction of Mr. Spina’s murderer.
Spina was a baseball umpire, so the softball game is an appropriate memorial fundraiser. Teams may enter the event for $300 and there are also some corporate sponsorships available. The tournament begins at 9:00 am and runs until 7:00 pm. Attendees may then move on to the Elk Lodge, where there will be an post-tournament wind-down with food and drinks from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. There is a $7 admission fee for adults and a $3 admission fee for those under the age of 18 who wish to attend the after party.
It is likely that printing businesses will have been creating flyers to help and promote this event. They may also be called on to create flyers for reward posters in the ongoing search for Mr. Spina’s killer.
