There are many events that “CLAIM” to be benefit events, but the Birchfield Memorial may be one of very few throughout the county that has a Board that oversees the 501c3 non-profit organization. Every penny of profit raised goes into the City Park. Improvements include a $40,000+ basketball court, thousands in new playground equipment (including equipment that is handicap accessible), and in 2020 the committee with re-top and re-crown both fields and add new bases and pitching rubbers.
