Join Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island for Family Night at McCoy Stadium -- Kids 5 years and younger FREE
PROVIDENCE, R.I., May 19, 2009 – Area residents can help support Rhode Island’s largest and oldest hospice with a night out with the Pawtucket Red Sox as they take on the Charlotte Knights.
Pawtucket Red Sox Night for Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island takes place Wednesday, June 17, at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket. Proceeds will benefit Home & Hospice Care of Rhodes Island, which has offered comprehensive medical, emotional and spiritual care for people facing life-challenging illnesses for over three decades.
PawSox night will feature an all-you-can-eat barbecue, beginning at 5:00 pm followed by the baseball game against the Charlotte Knights at 7:05 pm. In addition to the barbecue and game, many activities have been planned, including music, raffles, autographs from the PawSox players and a silent auction featuring New England sports memorabilia. The cost for the ticket is only $15. Kids, 5 years and under, are free.
This year's game has 8-year old David Bordieri throwing out the first pitch. David's uncle, Stephen Gaskin, Sr., died on Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island's service at the Philip Hulitar Inpatient Center. Stephen and David had a very special relationship that was made even stronger by their love of baseball. For David, throwing out the first pitch today is a dream come true, but more importantly, it gives David the opportunity to eulogize his uncle's legacy as an avid Red Sox fan.
Sponsorships also are available. “What better way to showcase your support of Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island, and at the same time entertain your staff or guests, than with an evening enjoying America’s favorite pastime – baseball,” says Pam Cassidy, the annual fund and memorial coordinator at HHCRI.
