10TH ANNUAL VIC HERSHKOWITZ DOUBLES HANDBALL TOURNAMENT
JANUARY 26-28, 2018

 

A Message from Jen Tartaglia-Hershkowitz

Welcome to the 10th Annual Vic Hershkowitz Foundation Doubles Handball Event. The David Posnack JCC is once again hosting this charity event for the benefit of special needs children and young adults in memory of Vic Hershkowitz. Your generous donations last year provided funding for children to attend camp at the DPJCC this past summer.  The JCC special needs camp has over 140 children, and we greatly appreciate your continued contributions, which provide summer program scholarships.

This year we will welcome Albert Apuzzi and Dave Dohman into the Vic Hershkowitz Hall of Fame.  Al has a total of 21 national one-wall titles and has been in 32 national finals.  That is more than any other player.  Al was inducted into the USHA Hall of Fame in 2011. Dave Dohman, also a USHA Hall of Famer, holds nine national three-wall titles plus over 20 age group national championships.  Dave also excelled at the four-wall game, earning top eight pro tour status during his early years.

The Ken Ginty Award will be presented to Bob Miller.  Bobby began playing handball in 1974 at the Fort Lauderdale YMCA under the watchful eye of Vic Hershkowitz and others.  Bobby holds a Canadian national doubles title plus Florida State three and four-wall singles and doubles crowns.  During the Vic tournament, Bobby is always there offering to help in any way he can.   

By donating to the Vic Hershkowitz Foundation Fund, your name will be permanently inscribed on the beautiful 2018 plaque and displayed on Vic’s Wall of Fame across from the handball courts at the JCC . Many thanks for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2018 three-day handball extravaganza!

Please contact 954.434.0499, ext. 120 for more information.
