A simple childhood game of kick ball was the theme of a successful fund drive for a great cause at Sunset Park in Londonderry Twp.
Teams faced off in a Kickball Tournament for the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors on Sunday, May 3 – and amid mighty kicks and uproarious laughter, $1,600 was raised.
The winners: The Flashers, with Ballz to the Wall finishing in second place.
Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors provides financial help to military personnel and their families for rent and mortgage payments, utility bills, home repairs and medical expenses not covered by government programs.

Students raised a school-record $21,295.49, beating the old record, set last year, by more than $5,000.
The Mini-THON, modeled after Penn State's successful THON fund-raiser for charity, began on Friday, April 17.
The money raised will go to the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital, a charity that helps families of kids battling cancer.
