STRANGELY DIM BY FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI
On Friday August 9th 2013, The Las Vegas 51’s will be offering two free tickets to their baseball game and post game fireworks show for every bag of non-perishable groceries brought to and donated at Cashman Field (850 Las Vegas Blvd.) from 5:00pm to 7:30 pm the night of the game. The game begins at 7:05pm. Donation booths will be set up at the entrance of Cashman Field. Donations will be taken directly from the game to the food pantries.
Volunteers from the food pantries will be manning the booths, distributing the tickets as well as transporting the donations to the pantries.
The Las Vegas job market and economic outlook remain uncertain. Placing full plates of food upon the tables of families caught in the aftermath of the economy remains equally uncertain and difficult. The Las Vegas 51’s, New York Mets Minor League Affiliate Baseball Club, want to “Pitch-In to help feed those in need”. The 51’s have partnered with the food pantry operated by Calvary Chapel Spring Valley on the West side of town and another local food pantry on the East side of town.
Hope to see you there!
