Ridgewood NJ, The Ridgewood Knights of Columbus Council #1736 held their annual stickball tournament on Saturday, October 7, on Passaic Street in Ridgewood.
Now in its eighth year, the Ridgewood Knights of Columbus, in partnership with the Run for Hope Foundation and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, sponsored this community stickball tournament to benefit recently homeless men and women who struggle with addiction, through Mt. Carmel’s Homeless Retreat Ministry. The Homeless Ministry Retreat is a spiritual program to help transform lives for the recently homeless. Through the retreats – one for men and one for women – homeless participants experience hope, faith, and unity through a caring network of men and women from varying socio-economic conditions. All proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to the Homeless Ministry Retreat.
As with previous years, members of Ridgewood’s fire and police departments entered teams, as well as the Village Council. This year’s top prize went to the Skittles Team, made up of Max Gieselmann, Luke Nataro, Brian Skettini and Matthew Favieri.
