Dear Members,
The Friends of GCC is supporting SquashSmarts, a free year-round academic and athletic youth mentoring program for underserved students from Philadelphia public schools.
GCC + SquashSmarts:
Germantown Cricket Club and SquashSmarts have a strong history with great support from leaders past & present, including Kirk Heilbrun, Eric Zillmer, Nick LePore, Molly Pierce, Pete Prinsen, Ken Pollack, Dan Goroff, Jim Domenick & Family, & Scott Etish (to name a few!). And of course, GCC is proud to employ SquashSmarts graduate Dewon Flythe, on staff since 2019!
Thank you to our current SquashSmarts Team GCC Captains: Jim Domenick (SquashSmarts Board), Bill Jaffe, Sean Allen, & Steve Ujifusa
The SquashSmarts BestShotBall:
Every year, SquashSmarts hosts a benefit event called the BestShotBall. This year it will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023, featuring exhibition matches that include GCC’s Chris Longman and Lauren West!
Eight local charity teams are asked to raise at least $25,000 and secure 10+ auction items. Team GCC surpassed this goal last year and with your help, we’ll do it again! You can donate directly by following the below link or checks made payable to Friends of GCC, PO Box 463, Edgemont, PA 19028.
Your donation to the Friends of GCC is tax-deductible and you will receive a donation receipt. All donations will be sent directly to SquashSmarts.

Thank you for your participation!  With your help, we are one step closer to our goal!
