GBV Attorneys Ready for Fresh Air Fund Charity Softball Tournament

May 15, 2008

On Wednesday, June 18th attorneys from Genova, Burns & Vernoia and a total of 15 teams made up of north jersey law firms will take the field once again for the 22nd Annual “Battle of the Barristers” charity softball tournament.  Since 1987, Northern New Jersey law firms have teamed up once a year for a full-day, round-robin softball tournament event from which the entire proceeds are donated to the Greater Newark Fresh Air Fund.  Umpires include judges from New Jersey courts.  Last year the event raised over $131,600 making it possible for 526 low-income and special needs children to spend a week at camp. The 2008 tournament will begin at 2pm at Brookdale Park in Bloomfield, New Jersey.  The two teams with the best record at the end of the round-robin will compete in the championship game which will be held that evening at the Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium in Newark.  GBV partner and co-founder Angelo J. Genova serves as chair of the 2008 Greater Newark Fresh Air Fund.
