NH Little League improperly donated $17,500 to Dana Farber Cancer Institute
MANCHESTER — On April 26, Little League International issued a statement saying that $17,500 was improperly donated to Dana Farber by former District 1 administrator Don Kirkland in October, according to Manchester Ink Link.
A statement was released by the Director of Little League International, Brian McClinock. It read:
“As a courtesy to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO, informed the Institute of the issue regarding local, district funds improperly donated by former New Hampshire District 1 Administrator, Don Kirkland. As soon as the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute was made aware of this matter, they immediately offered to return the monies. And, late in the day on April 26, Little League International was advised that the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute would be returning those funds to the new New Hampshire District 1 Administrator, Sally Dreckmann. Little League International is grateful to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for their attention to this unfortunate matter.”
Dreckmann said though a majority of District 1 League Presidents voted not to pursue restitution, she decided to speak up about the missing money.
