Last night’s benefit event for CSI graduate Danielle Ponsiglione was officially postponed due to the weather, but the new date will be Monday, June 30 at 7:00pm at the Tomás D. Morales Baseball Field at CSI.
Ponsiglione will be the guest of honor when she returns to the CSI diamond, but the multiple record holder and three-time CUNYAC Pitcher of the Year, who graduated in 2012, is fighting a new competitor in Stage IV Melanoma. To offset medical expenses associated with treatment, CSI will host this event that will feature multiple three-inning games from a variety of teams. Entry fees collected from the participant,s as well as money generated from raffles, concessions, and prizes, will be donated to Ponsiglione’s family.
Danielle has stayed close to softball and to CSI. Her father, Michael, just completed his first season as Head Coach for Brooklyn College, where he won Coach of the Year honors.
To sign up to participate in the event, or to donate funds or offer up a raffle prize, please contact CSI Head Coach Stella Porto at 908.463.1300. In-person registration at the CSI Softball Complex will begin at 6:00pm on Monday. Should rain interfere again with the festivities, a rain make-up date will be announced.
We hope that you can join us for this great evening.
