The Stephanie Crispinelli Softball Tournament Continues With A Purpose

On Sunday afternoon, Reis Park in Somers again played host to the Stephanie Crispinelli Softball Tournament and Fundraiser. Initiated seven years ago to remember the 19 year old’s tragic death in the Haiti earthquake.  The gathering also celebrates her efforts to bring education to developing countries in the Caribbean and defies the typical logic that people eventually move on, while leaving the family to carry the pain and the cause by themselves, according to Nicole Crispinelli.
“This is really something to continue with a purpose and have the Somers community cherish Stephanie’s life and commitment with us,” said her sister. 
In terms of the family traveling to Jamaica every year and leaving with something to show for their dedication, Stephanie’s Mission is batting 1.000.  In seven years, we’ve built six elementary schools, and this past year we expanded one that needed more space,” said Nicole.
