LINDBLOM PARK ADVISORY COUNCIL via Crowdrise
July 08, 2011
BENEFITING: LINDBLOM PARK ADVISORY COUNCIL
EVENT DATE: Jul 25, 2011
Our goal is to help send the kids involved in the West Englewood Baseball program to the the Inner City Black World Series in Orlando, FL. July 25-31, 2011 sponsored by the Metropolitan Junior Baseball League (http://www.mjbl.org/). The kids will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in clinics with former... Major League Baseball stars, as well as, MLB scouts (http://www.infosports.com/listing.cgi?t=t&s=b&n=14356&lr=GA).
Many of the children involved in this program come from single-family, low-income homes and covering the cost of travel, accomodations and food could potentially force a child to miss out on this opportunity. We want to try to prevent that from happening. Some very talented friends of mine have agreed to assist me towards this end.
The 4-year story behind this amazing group of kids and their coach was recently told in the Chicago Tribune. Please read their story.
