It’s time for baseball, which also means the inspiring kids from the Orange County Miracle League are back out on their field at Pioneer Park for the spring season.
To help get things kicked off, they are hosting their annual fundraiser, “Swing Big!!”, on Saturday, April 20, from 4:30pm – 7:30pm.
This family fun day at their field at Pioneer Park’s All-Star Complex will feature music, great food, entertainment, games, incredible raffle prizes and more.
But most of all, this is a chance to raise money for an amazing organization that gives special needs kids in our community the chance to play the game they love. As their motto says, “Every Child Deserves the Chance to Play Baseball.” Debbie and Steel Morris and all the volunteers who work tirelessly to offer this program to our local kids could sure use the support. They provide this program free of charge to the families who participate and this can only happen with support from the community.
Here are some of the awesome raffle prizes available:
