James City County Parks and Recreation’s Youth Advisory Council is hosting a Baseball Extravaganza Benefit in memory of three very special citizens - David Todd McLane, II and Christopher Gavora who both played baseball for our area high schools, and David Gosselin, recognized as the heart and soul of Williamsburg Baseball for many, many years.
The Youth Advisory Commission wants to ensure their legacies are remembered, and have set a goal to raise funds for three scholarship funds – the Lafayette High School Cherished Angels Scholarship Fund in David McLane’s name, the Christopher Gavora Army Aviation Scholarship Fund and Williamsburg Youth Baseball League in the name of Dave Gosselin.
The Baseball Extravaganza Benefit will be held on Saturday, March 8, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Warhill Sports Complex, 5700 Warhill Trail. Students, children, families and friends are invited to come out and have a great time while remembering these very special men.
The Youth Advisory Council, a 12-member board comprised of students in grades 8-12, serves as a link between youth and local government. These young Board members annually sponsor a variety of projects and programs that make positive changes in the quality of life for all citizens.
