March for Pier 40

PLAY IT FORWARD!  March for Pier 40!

Greenwich Village Little League Opening Day.

Saturday, April 6th, 9 AM at Christopher Street Pier.

We can’t pay back the debt we owe to all the volunteers who worked hard to get the fields built at Pier 40 and made our community a better place.  But you can Pay It Forward by joining us to Save Pier 40 on April 6th.

So you are a teenager and you think Little League Opening Day is kid’s stuff?  Not this year!  This one is serious fun.  This one is an important place to be.  If you want to make a difference, Come March for Pier 40 on Saturday, April 6th.  Meet us at the Christopher Street Pier at 9 AM.

You can’t play back your years of fun on the fields, but you can “Play It Forward” by helping to save Pier 40 and using your power so the next generations have what you have.

Please come out on GVLL Opening Day 2013 to March For Pier 40 to help make sure Pier 40 is there for the kids coming up now.
