A Message from Jen Tartaglia-Hershkowitz

Welcome to the 12th 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 Harold Hanft and Teddy Bystock into the Vic Hershkowitz Hall of Fame.  In the mid 1950s, Harold won the open AAU one-wall singles title two years in a row.  Then, playing with Teddy, won a 50+ four-wall title, plus three 50+ three-wall championships partnering with Vic Hershkowitz.

Teddy Bystock holds five doubles titles, one playing with Harold Hanft and four 60+ titles with Jack Weitz.

The Ken Ginty Award will be presented to Will Arsenault.  In 1979 Ken moved to Daytona Beach to work for Will.  The following year they teamed up and won the Florida State four-wall, the Southeast four-wall and the AAU state four-wall titles in 1980, ‘82, and ‘84.  In 1984 and ‘85, they won the Bob Haas Memorial Tournaments.  Following hip replacement surgery, Will started a juniors handball clinic that included his son, Brett, and daughter, Cara, who went on to win numerous individual titles. 

By donating to the Vic Hershkowitz Foundation Fund, your name will be permanently inscribed on the beautiful 2020 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 2020 three-day handball extravaganza!

Participation will be limited to the first 100 entries!
