Wiffle Palooza VIII will be held on Saturday June 16th in Aston, PA.
Back in the summer of 2005 a bunch of us decided to start a wiffleball tournament just for fun in a friend’s backyard. We had about 5 or 6 teams. Well a couple weeks before the tourney, a dear close friend of ours, Ray Withelder was victim to a fatal car crash. So what we decided to do is charge $25 per player and start a scholarship fund for 2 Sun Valley athletes, 1 male and 1 female and call it the Ray Withelder Memorial Scholarship Fund. Well that year I think we raised about $200. So we said let’s try and make this an annual event and start asking around. Needless to say the following year we had 16 teams, with 4 fields going and we raised close to $2,000. The following year we had about 35 teams with 8 fields and raised almost $5,000. We are now in year 8 and have raised over $15,000 total
