One week from today (Pray for sunshineJ) is the Strike Out Childhood Cancer night at the ballfieldsJ
We have many fun and exciting things going on that night. From a dizzy bat competition (which I’m very excited about), a sparkle contest, vendors (who are selling things from homemade signs, and kettle corn; to seeing how fast you can throw a strike using a radar gun) the ball games, and finally a candle light vigil in honor or memory of kids who have fought this battle.
If you bring a new toy, still in its packaging, you can get in for FREE!
If you have family and friends in the area that you could pass this information to, that would be wonderful! I’ve attached a list of toy suggestions if anyone has questions.
Thanks for supporting our endeavor to Strike Out Childhood Cancer!!
