First Charity Game: Peoria Notre Dame vs. Metamora

Metamora met Notre Dame on April 16, 2016 to compete in a doubleheader. The game took place at Louisville Slugger Sports Complex and the Irish won 2-1 and 14-2.  Even though the teams are known rivals, they joined together to gain something greater than a win: helping children defeat cancer. The doubleheader was Hits for the Cure’s first charity game and it was a huge success. From the combination of a gate fee, 50/50 raffle, and concessions, the teams together raised $365. Not only did they raise money, but they helped spread the word of what Hits for the Cure is about by bringing so many people to the game who showed their support for the teams and the charity.
