Crosscutters accepting applications for annual Hot Stove Dinner charity

The Williamsport Crosscutters are accepting applications from area non-profits for the eighth annual Hot Stove Dinner and Auction with the Phillies to take place on Jan. 20, 2014, at the Genetti Hotel. The event features guests from the Phillies along with other local sports celebrities.

A portion of the proceeds from the event are donated to a local non-profit each year.

“This is our favorite event of the off season,” said Gabe Sinicropi the team’s vice president of marketing and public relations. “We look forward to another night of fun with the Phillies and the opportunity to raise needed funding for a local charity.” In past years the Hot Stove Dinner and Auction has raised as much as $4,000 for the selected charity.

Local non-profit agencies who wish to be considered must complete and return a short application by Nov. 15. The application is available online at, at the Cutters offices at Historic Bowman Field or by emailing

A guest list and ticket details regarding the annual dinner are expected to be announced soon. Businesses wishing to receive sponsorship information for the event may contact the Crosscutters at 570-326-3389.
