Whole Foods (Newton Highlands) Sponsors Barbecue Fundraiser for New England Champions

On Saturday (this past weekend), Whole Foods in Four Corners (Newton Highlands, Massachusetts) held a noon time barbeque fundraiser for the New England Champions, the Newton Babe Ruth 14-year-old Tournament Team to raise funds for the team’s journey to Richmond, Virginia, where they will be competing in the Babe Ruth World Series!  100% of the proceeds will be donated to the champion Newton Babe Ruth Tournament Team, to help defray the costs of traveling to the Babe Ritj 14-Year-Old World Series in Virginia.

Our hats off (although all the hats in the photos are on) to Whole Foods -- this festive neighborhood event was a wonderful way of honoring the boys for a job well done, and the food could not be beat.  All natural hot dogs, hamburgers, hamburger & hot dog rolls, chicken breasts (apple or chile lime flavored), all freshly barbecued to order by Whole Foods, with lettuce and fresh tomatoes to enliven the sandwiches, and all for a donation to the Newton Babe Ruth 14-year-old Tournament Team's trip to the Babe Ruth 14 Year Old's World Series.  Set up in front of the store, with round picnic tables and chairs to enjoy the repast, the picnic even offered free peanuts in the shell!  If you weren't there, you really missed a fun summer noon-time opportunity to chat with the boys and the coaches, and to support the team!
Best wishes to all of the boys, the coaches and the manager in the upcoming playoffs at the World Series in Virginia!
