2014 JACK MOORE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP PRESENTATIONS & COMMUNITY SOFTBALL GAME

 

 

On a beautiful August Saturday afternoon the Fishtown AC Alumni Association presented its annual scholarships to deserving students who either played for the Fishtown Athletic Club or reside in the city's 19125 Zip Code area.  This year's winners, who will receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,250, are Shawn Bradley, Arthur Dolan IV, Michael Giulian, Marisa Murphy, and Quinn Keenan.

Following the scholarship presentations members of the community representing the Blue and Grey teams prepared to do battle.  Jack Ondik, son of John A. Ondik, the founder of the Fishtown Athletic Club, threw out the first ball and the game was underway.  In a back and forth contest, the Blue team prevailed winning by an 11 - 10 score.  After the traditional handshakes all of the team members gathered in center field to enjoy a great picnic, and a time to just catch up with friends and neighbors.  Thanks go out to all that took part in the festivities, and those that have contributed to the Alumni's Scholarship Fund over many years.  With the presentation of this year's scholarships, since 1995 the Alumni Association has awarded more than $110,000 to the youth of the Fishtown community.
