Bags for Brian
Family, Friends, and LoveEvery September to commemorate Brian DeWitt’s birthday on September 26, friends and family take us to a place that Brian would enjoy: the ballpark or a hall where we challenge family, friends, and even strangers to a Corn Hole Tournament. Due to COVID, the planners decided to go with a virtual “Bags for Brian 2020.” Your donation will support PursuitSAFETY’s top three programs listed below. Thank you for your gift in Brian’s name!
Bags for Brian 2019
Scenes from Bags for Brian 2019. Mark and Candy Priano enjoyed playing “Bags” which they know as Corn Hole. This tribute to Brian DeWitt shows how much he gave back to his family, his friends, and his community. It’s an annual event that brings together people of all ages, from every walk of life and, most of all, family and friends who love Brian and his family. They also welcome strangers, and several that I spoke with had a lot of fun! “On behalf of PursuitSAFETY, I thank you. Going back to this fundraiser’s baseball roots, you truly are the Greatest Team.” With love, Candy and Mark Priano
Friendship: Baseball for BrianPast events
2018 Bags For BrianEvery year Brian DeWitt’s friends and family take us out to the ballpark as a fundraising event to financially support PursuitSAFETY. Since 2017, the family decided to do more of a bags or Cornhole tournament. The event continues to raise a significant amount of money and has donated again this year to PursuitSAFETY and has done so for the last 6 years. We here at PursuitSAFETY are so-o-o grateful to everyone who supports this annual event that shines the park lights on ‘Baseball for Brian.’ Their donations go toward our educational programs. Without their donations, we wouldn’t be where we are today and able to provide family members and injured innocent victims a safe place they can turn to for the support they need. Deborah DeWitt says, “Our lives will never be the same without Brian. My heart is broken and saying goodbye to my sweet son was the hardest thing I had to do in my life. He was such a loving son and brother and friend to all. He was funny and smart and popular and handsome. He always had a huge smile and big cheeks and gave everyone amazing hugs.”
Love: Brian’s Family & Friends“It was an honor and a privilege for my husband Mark (back, left) and me (far left) to attend the 2015 ‘Baseball for Brian’ event!”said Candy Priano. “Brian has awesome friends and the most loving family. The memory of this day will always be close to my heart, perhaps because it was Brian’s birthday, too.”
2013 Baseball For BrianThe sweetest baseball team! Maria Anchacles said, “Three years ago today, Oct. 5, 2010, we lost one of our greatest friends, Brian DeWitt, but today we remembered him by playing one of his favorite games. Thank you to everyone who came out and participated, cheered, and donated. We raised over $1,000 for PursuitSAFETY and are happy our angel held off on the rain until the end.” Balloons are released after family and friends sing “Happy Birthday” to Brian, September 26.
