Battle of the Paddles
BY JUSTIN SOUZA
Great food and drinks, silent auctions and a tiered tournament to crown the county’s most legendary table tennis player. For nonprofit events, it doesn’t get better than this.
On October 10, the Boys & Girls Club of Stanislaus County hit an ace with the first annual Battle of the Paddles at Modesto Center Plaza.
At the event, which benefitted the Boys & Girls Club’s tremendous after school and summer youth enrichment services, local ping pong champions vied for supremacy in one-on-one games while spectators cheered, noshed and bid to benefit Stanislaus County’s premier youth service program. By the close of the night, MOCSE’s Garrett Mutoza (pictured bottom left) had been crowned the ping pong champion, and the whole community had brought home a major win for local kids.
