Washington celebration planned in support of local kids

May 28, 2017 by  

Washington’s Nationals Park will soon be serving as the site for the Home Runs for Horton’s Kids fundraiser, which helps local at risk youth find a connection between themselves, their school, and their home community.

This family friendly event will feature activities for people of any age. There will be a slow pitch contest where the competitors can put their pitching skills to the test, as well as a Kid Zone, races with President Teddy, batting practice, and much more. When time comes for refreshments, those who attend can enjoy some of the stadium food that will be available, and there will also be an open bar.

Children under the age of 14 will be admitted free of charge, and all others will be asked to pay a ticket price of $250. Banners and other decorations for a fundraiser like this can be supplied by a local printer.

The function has been organized in support of Horton’s Kids, which is a not-for-profit group that seeks to empower children who live in one of the city’s most at risk areas. According to the organizers, a boy or girl who participates in the initiative has a much higher chance of graduating high school and moving on to a successful career as an adult.

The festivities, which will take place rain or shine, have been planned for June 21 in Nationals Park, which can be found at 1500 South Capital Street. Anyone who would like to learn more can do so on the organizer’s website.
