Help Franklin Little League by Seeing Unique Car
Franklin Little League
When Roberto Clemente was named MVP of the 1971 World Series the Pittsburgh Pirates organization gifted him a brand new 1972 Dodge Charger. That very car will be on display for the very first time at a fundraiser benefiting Franklin Little League Baseball this Saturday. For a $21 donation you can join the reveal party from 6 to 9PM in the Franklin High School Auditorium with food, special guest speakers, and charity auction featuring baseball memorabilia. Proceeds from this event will go to restoring the outfield fence at Colonel Williams Field and the Roberto Clemente Charger is being presented by its owner Randy Dye after a generous endowment by Clarion County Community Bank.
