The Vancouver Canadians have invited local media personalities (myself included) to step up to the plate at Nat Bailey Stadium on June 11th for the annual Strike Out Heart Disease Celebrity Softball Game. We’ll play in a six-inning ball game at this historic stadium in support of the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation.
I’d like to invite everyone to this game, where admission is by donation ($2.00 suggested) and 100% of proceeds go to the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation and its efforts to raise funds and awareness of the risks of heart disease. Cash donations can also be made per strikeout throughout the season.
Last year, Strike Out Heart Disease raised $60,000 for the provincial Heart Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital with support from the John C. Kerr Family Foundation. The season opened with the inaugural St. Paul’s Celebrity Softball Classic, a five-inning softball game featuring staff from presenting sponsors Blake, Cassels & Graydon, and Deloitte, along with local celebrities.
Join two teams of local media (TV, radio, print, and digital) personalities, local celebrities and dignitaries, Jake Kerr, Co-Owner of the Vancouver Canadians, and Andy Dunn, President of the Vancouver Canadians for this very special game.
The Vancouver Canadians Strike Out Heart Disease Celebrity Softball Game takes place Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at 7:05pm (gates open at 6:00pm). This action-packed night at the Nat will be complete with dancing groundskeepers and I’m told the two-foot hot dogs will be available –- true essentials to any ball game.
To make sure the stands are packed at this special event for a great cause, the Vancouver Canadians have offered up two pairs of tickets for me to give away to my readers. Here’s how you can enter to win:
