This is a project through ViMa Ro & Co the project coordinator

ViMa Ro & Co is a start-up commemorative service and product company. ViMa Ro & Co LLC is a commemorative service and product company specializing in wood benches and other customizable products.

The concept for ViMa Ro & Co was sparked by the loss of my grandson, Victor Manuel Rodriguez. In our grief and search for healing, we turned to building a bench as a way to process our emotions. Little did we know that by sharing our story and project ideas, it would ignite a profound interest and open doors of opportunity for our work. It was from this deeply personal experience that ViMa Ro & Co was born.

This Project:
We have commemorative bench request in honor of Steven Diaz, Jr., age 21 a North End Little League Baseball coach, died this past May of cancer.

Steve was a big baseball fan and adored the sport alongside his dad, ever since he was a kid. Steven and his father played a part in the training of several players 3 years ago.

Steven, a true Bridgeport native through and through, could be found many times with a baseball glove in one hand and a smile on his face. He didn't just play the game; he was a coach and mentor to the next generation of sluggers, imparting his love for the sport with infectious enthusiasm. And let's not forget his passion for cars, shared with a circle of friends who were just as revved up about horsepower and torque as he was.

The league would like to continue his legacy through his favorite sport. The league wants to build a large Adirondack destination bench and install it at the Bridgeport, North End Little League Ball Field on June 15, 2024.
