Friendship: Baseball for Brian

2015 collage B-Ball for Brian DeWitt

Every year Brian DeWitt's friends and family take us out to the ballpark and financially support PursuitSAFETY. We are so grateful to everyone involved in this event. Family and friends fill this September day with memories of a young man whose life was taken way too soon. The love for Brian fills one's heart. Pictured in this collage are (clockwise, starting at the top, Debbie Dewitt with her son Brian. She described Brian as funny and smart. "He had a huge smile and amazing hugs," she told Candy. At the bat is a home run hitter. Outdoor shots covering multiple playing fields. As this event grows, so do the number of fields. Debbie and Maria Anchacles, one of the main organizer's of this year's event, take a break to pose for a snapshot. A friend, Brett Prockish, gave flowers to Debbie!

Maria Anchacles said, "Three years ago today, Oct. 5, 2010, we lost one of our greatest friends, Brian DeWitt, but today we remembered him by playing one of his favorite games. Thank you to everyone who came out and participated, cheered, and donated. We raised over $1,000 for PursuitSAFETY and are happy our angel held off on the rain until the end."

Love: Brian's Family & Friends
Candy and Mark take a picture with Baseball for Brian friends and family.
"It was an honor and a privilege for my husband Mark (back, left) and me (far left) to attend the 2015 'Baseball for Brian' event!" said Candy Priano. "Brian has awesome friends and the most loving family. The memory of this day will always be close to my heart, perhaps because it was Brian's birthday, too." Also pictured from second left are Brian's sister Cindy, his mom and dad Debbie and John, and sister Jessica (front). Below are pictures of balloons after family and friends sang "Happy Birthday" to Brian.
