Wayne’s Wiffle For a Wish


This Saturday, August 17th, is Wayne’s Wiffle for a Wish. In its 5th year this annual wiffleball tournament raises money for the Maine Make-a-Wish foundation. All money raised stays right here in Maine and grants the wishes of Maine children. Wayne’s Wiffle for a Wish has raised over $28,000 in the past four years, the average wish granted costs $6,000, this tournament has raised enough money to grant 4 full wishes.

I’ve been involved with this charity wiffleball tournament for the past three years, I’ve been on teams playing, I’ve donated raffle prizes and since 2010 I’ve donated my time and helped set up the fields for the tournament. This year I will again donate my time and help set up the fields and I’ll also be fielding a team. I reached out to fellow beer bloggers/podcaster from around the state and assembled a team, myself, Carla “The Beer Babe” Companion, as well as Tony C, Ryan and Ben from the Drink’n Think’n Podcast.

Come on down and buy some Raffle Tickets, I’m including the list of prizes in this blog post.  I’ll be playing on Field 8 between 9am-3pm, the first 10 people to tell me you read this blog post and show me that you bought some raffle tickets will win a beery prize from me.
