A Night at the BlueClaws

LakewoodBlueClaws.PNGWe had a great turnout for our first annual BlueClaws outing on Friday night, May 11, 2012! 110 parents, teachers, students and staff gathered together in the BlueClaws' Centerfield Cookout area. We enjoyed a 1 1/2 hour all-you-can-eat buffet and a terrific fireworks show after the game!

May 11th was "Teacher Appreciation" night at the stadium and we hope all the teachers in attendance felt appreciated on their special night. Some of our teachers got to go out on the field before the game and throw out the first pitch. Mrs. Snow from DDES and Dr. Kasun showed fabulous geographic prowess when they went head-to-head in a "Name that State Capital" game out on the field.

Please enjoy some pictures from the outing. We hope you will join us next year!

A special thank you to the fall event committee for their outstanding work in planning and executing a successful event, and to local photographer Miguel Ramirez for donating his services to the evening. The foundation is indebted to the Radisson as well as the many businesses, organizations and individuals who donated good and services to the gift basket raffle and helped ensure a successful evening of fundraising.
