This was about as friendly a political competition as there every could be. The 2016 CAI / Easter Seals Volleyball Challenge on March 22 included the infamous match-up between local Democrats vs. Republicans, where political rivalries — but certainly not hearty hand-to-hand court combat — were put aside for the benefit of Easter Seals. After a hard fought battle, the Dems pulled out an exhilarating victory.
Participants included U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons; Congressman John Carney; Lt. Gov. Matt Denn; State Sens. Greg Lavelle and Nicole Poore; State Reps. Valerie Longhurst and Michael Ramone. And also included in the TSD cover photo are CAI Managing Director Ernie Dianastasis and CAI Board Member Julie Master Grilliot.
More than 150 teams and 2000 people over the March 18th weekend as everyone united to raise funds for Easter Seals and services for people with disabilities. With the weekend’s success, Easter Seals is marching towards their goal of raising $400,000.
