Quad Cities, USA: Have you ever heard 500 bells ring at the same time!? Come to the season opening game of the RiverBandits to experience it! The first 500 fans to purchase a tennis ball for the evening’s ball toss onto the field will receive a bell to help cheer on our hometown team.
Major Gary Felton, Quad Cities Coordinator and 30-year officer with The Salvation Army, will be honored with throwing out the first pitch of the season.
Your support of The Salvation Army will help to continue their work all around the Quad Cities. The Family Service Center in downtown Davenport is the Quad Cities’ only family shelter serving single fathers and two parent families, and houses 105 homeless people each night -- 65% of the residents are children. An additional 75-130 community members go to the Family Service Center each night for their evening meal, Monday through Saturday. In Rock Island County, Salvation Army services including rent and utility assistance, clothing vouchers and food boxes have served the area’s less fortunate.
WHAT: Salvation Army Night at the Ballpark
WHERE: Modern Woodmen Park, inside the stadium at the tennis ball table
DATE: Thursday, April 3, 2014
