Toys for Tots Tournament

BlueFire Girls Softball recently competed in the Annual Toys for Tots program at Baldwin Park and Newbridge Park. This program was born out of a vision by Danny Gomez, a new BlueFire coach, nine years ago. Each year, Danny and his wife Maribel work tirelessly on this tournament which raises toys for tots through the Marine Corp. Each player in the tournament is asked to bring one unwrapped toy and the Marines come to the field, take pictures with the girls and collect the toys. The Marines then distribute those toys to children who are not fortunate enough to have the pleasures we all have.

“Anytime that we see a tournament for a great cause, our organization will undoubtedly participate,” explains Joe Maniscalco, Founder and President of the BlueFire Softball Program. We aim to teach softball, but also an appreciation for what we have. We want the girls to recognize the privileges they enjoy and be grateful for them. The Toys for Tots Program was a huge success. Through the program, the tournament was able to fill 12 huge boxes of toys. BlueFire would like to Thank the Marines and Danny Gomez and his wife Maribel for their hard work in running this program.
