Play For Gateway Nets $29,000



This was the best year ever for the "Play for Gateway" softball tournament. Executive director Emil Gallay says the proceeds from this past weekend's event surpassed his expectations by about $7,000 to $8,000

Gallay says one big help was their first-ever platinum sponsorship by United Federal Credit Union, and the bribes during the games were bigger than ever. He says when two teams from Lakeland played, they raised the bar very high.

The money raised this year will be put toward new computers for those who use Gateway to write resumes, build job skills and more.

Gateway is moving to a new facility in Benton Harbor in August from Berrien Springs, and their offices will have Wi-Fi for the first time. Gallay says they are already looking at 2015, which will be the 30th year for the fundraiser. He wants it to be even bigger than ever next year to help disabled people in the area succeed. Gallay says any companies or organizations that want to get involved should contact him through their website at Gatewayvro.org.
