    Binghamton District’s UM Night at the Ball Game a home run

    July 24, 2015 / By Kathleen Rubino / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    The Binghamton District’s United Methodist Night at the Ball Game on Thursday, June 25, was the most successful event in eight years. Approximately 500 people went to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton to catch a Binghamton Mets game, and the event raised $2,329 – eclipsing previous years’ tallies by more than $100. Of that money, $300 will go to the Upper Room Living Prayer Center, and more than $1,600 will go to the Society of St. Andrew, an ecumenical hunger ministry, to help pay for a truckload of potatoes that will help feed the hungry.

    “Most of all we were a spirited bunch of United Methodists,” said Ken Summers, the coordinator for the Binghamton District’s United Methodist Night at the Ball Game. “We had fun, did good, and God was in our presence. We don't do these things alone.”

    The choirs at the Windsor and Fairview United Methodist churches sang the National Anthem, and Summers threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
