Table Tennis Tournament Raises Funds for Turkeys, But Need Still Not Met

BUFFALO, N.Y. – With Catholic Charities of Buffalo in need of  turkeys for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, the Broadway Market held the first-ever “Broadway Battle” Table Tennis Tournament Oct. 16, where players competed to win the title of tournament champion – all in the name of a good cause.

Winners of the tournament were Ray Nagel, first place; Cliff Falk, second place; Tom Handley, third place; and Scott Gaddi, fourth place. Richard Roman, an official USA Table Tennis referee, donated his time to oversee the tournament and Former Miss Buffalo Nina Perino sang the National Anthem.

Entry fees totaling $210 were donated to Catholic Charities to provide turkeys to families in need this Thanksgiving. But even with this contribution, food will still be in short supply according to Eileen Nowak, Catholic Charities’ director of Parish Outreach and Advocacy.
