This year’s annual game between neighboring rivals Somers and Yorktown, set for Tuesday, May 3 at 7 p.m.at Charlie Murphy Field in Yorktown, will benefit the Stephanie Crispinelli Humanitarian Fund.
Here’s more info that was sent to me today by Linda Schuldt, the mother of Yorktown senior Ty Schuldt and one of the parents involved in organizing this charitable effort.
In Tragedy We Find Life’s Purpose.
2008 Somers High School Graduate
On January 12, 2010 Stephanie Crispinelli’s life was tragically cut short by the Haiti Earthquake. Stephanie was 19 years old. She was traveling on the “Journey of Hope” mission with 2 professors and 11 classmates from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. Stephanie was a sophomore majoring in Human Services.
Stephanie was in Haiti doing what she enjoyed most: working with and caring for the poorest of the poor. Stephanie was committed to helping poor, hungry, and disadvantaged children around the globe. Stephanie leaves behind family and friends who love her dearly as well as others that may have only known her beautiful smile.
Many have indicated a desire to help. We have established the Stephanie Crispinelli Humanitarian Fund in partnership with the Westchester Community Foundation. Donations are 100% tax deductible. All funds raised will be used to continue Stephanie’s Mission of helping the poor by supporting non-profit, US-based charities.
In one short year, through the love and generosity of so many, Stephanie’s Mission has done great things. We have built “Steph’s Place”, a school in Race Course Jamaica accommodating eighty-seven pre-school children, provided J-term scholarships for three Lynn University students to go on mission trips similar to the ones that motivated Stephanie, and have provided a humanitarian intern project in Nicaragua for a Somers (NY) High School student. We have also put a Steph’s Caring Bear into the arms of hundreds of hurting children in hospitals or traveling by ambulance or Angel Flight, and we have provided medical relief for children in La Carpio, Nicaragua. We are also thrilled to announce that we will again partner with Food For The Poor to build another “Steph’s Place” school this summer!
