RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph Policemen and Firemen donned a hat of a different kind on the evening of Saturday Oct. 1, when they met in Brundage Park to play a charity softball game.
“This is the fourth year we have done the policeman verse fireman softball game,” said Former Fire Chief Kevin Dunne. “This year Matt ( Police detective Matt Pfeffer ) came up with the idea of doing the charity for Goryeb Children's Hospital in Morristown.
This year, the police department came up with the idea to sell T-shirts to assist in fundraising.
“We tried to run the game in conjunction with the country fair that was held this afternoon,” said Pfeffer. “We had a booth set up at the fair along with the fire apartment where we sold T-shirts and took donations.”
The players all gathered together with family and friends to share laughs after the game, while enjoying a barbeque of burgers and dogs cooked right by the side of the field.
“We love getting together, as we have a great working relationship between the police department and fire department in town,” said Dunne.
“I think next year we will concentrate a little more on promoting it, getting the word out, and trying to get the towns people out to help support us and the charity,” said Pfeffer.
