YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The Yorktown Police Department and the 12U Yorktown Warriors squared off Sunday in a charity baseball game at Navajo Fields.

Money was raised to send Yorktown children to Camp Sunshine, a Casco, Maine, facility that provides a year-round retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The fundraiser was organized by Sergio Esposito and Dr. Rodd Stein.

Esposito said it costs about $2,500 to send one child and their family to the camp for a week. All money raised at the game will be donated directly to Camp Sunshine and earmarked for Yorktown children. Candidates will be chosen through local hospitals.

Before the first pitch, Esposito said enough money had been raised to send one child to the camp, thanks in part to a $1,000 donation by George Lucciola of State Farm in Yorktown.

At the end of the day, $3,915 was raised. Esposito is hoping to reach the $5,000 mark. Additional donations can be made at gofundme.com/yorktownforcampsun.

State Sen. Terrence Murphy coached the Warriors while Supervisor Michael Grace coached the officers. The Warriors won the game 8 to 7.

Sponsors and donors included Rita’s Italian Ice, Wayback Burgers, Turco’s, Put Some Meat on Your Bones, Little Sorrento and Navajo Fields.
