• Bill Leaf Memorial Kickball Tournament – Saturday, September 12

    The SU Alumni Club of CNY is hosting the 10th Annual Bill Leaf Memorial Kickball Tournament on Saturday, September 12, at the Syracuse Kickball Park on Rt. 57 in Liverpool starting at 9:30 a.m. This event seeks to raise awareness of the dangers of DWI while supporting two memorial scholarship funds: the Bill Leaf Fund at SU and the Samantha Reynolds Fund at Liverpool High School. Bill and Samantha were killed by drunk drivers in separate incidents in 2006 and 2008, respectively.

    The Kickball Tournament is a fun day for great causes. The cost is $25/person and includes a team T-shirt, breakfast, and lunch. The tournament is double elimination. We encourage you to pull together a team of friends, family, neighbors, or coworkers and enter the tournament. No kickball expertise is required! Only a positive attitude is necessary!

    Please see details at or contact Jonathan Hoster at or 315-443-5348 with any questions.
