Radio personality Joe Causi emceed the event as President and CEO Ken Gibbs’ Heathcare Heroes took on Dolores Cantania’s Real Housewives of New Jersey All Stars.

An enthusiastic crowd of 3,464 cheered for the TV personalities and their families as Tom Cardona, the Cyclones’ partnership development director, umpired a spirited game.
