If I was willing to rappel down the Centerpoint Energy building in Downtown Evansville for charity, you would think that agreeing to play Wiffle Ball would be an easy yes. Oh, I am going to play in the first-ever River City Wiffle Ball Classic Presented by Moore Music to help Strike Out Homelessness in our community. But I will probably have to disclose that I have zero aim, and I might cheat to win.


 What is The River City Wiffle Ball Classic?

Seriously, I am super excited to be a part of this new event benefitting Aurora and Echo Housing. This unique fundraising event will not only raise funds to assist the clients served by Aurora and ECHO Housing, but we also hope to grow awareness and nurture partnerships in the community.

Strike Out Homelessness at Historic Bosse Field

It's going to be pretty awesome to be able to say that you played Wiffle Ball at one of the oldest ballparks in America!

Team entry fees will include a collectible first-year River City Wiffle Ball Classic t-shirt and a family pass for that day to the new Deaconess Aquatic Center across from Bosse Field. It's going to be a fun day for the family, even if you don't play Wiffle ball. The Hadi Funsters will be making balloon animals, bounce houses will be set up, plus they will have craft vendors, live music, and more.

collaboratively to end homelessness in the Tri-State.
The two organizations were born from the same volunteer movement in
The 1980s then called Evansville Coalition for the Homeless and later evolved
into independent nonprofits with specialized missions within homeless
Acting as partner organizations, Aurora provides critical services and
resources to individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and ECHO
Housing provides the permanent housing that marks the end of
homelessness for those households.

Nearly all participants in ECHO Housing programs were first served by Aurora, and together the two organizations have ended hundreds of cases of homelessness within our community.

Aurora and ECHO Housing celebrate their partnership, and their shared
history, as they work in pursuit of their ultimate vision: a community where
