I know, it seems like the only time I post anymore is when I have something to sell or promote, right? Pretty much. (BTW I did sell the bike! Woo woo!)
But this time, it’s not about me. It’s about a young boy in our community. Read on for more details…
Buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks!!!!
Come enjoy a sunny, family-fun, community day at the ballpark!
Let’s knock our Rookie (6, 7 & 8 year-old) A's socks off with the biggest and most EXCITED crowd we can muster! Kind of like this crowd here: http://improveverywhere.com/2008/04/07/best-game-ever/
That's the kind of energy we want to re-create Saturday for the boys. Make up some posters and placards. Bring some peanuts and popcorn. Get creative. Have fun! Be loud! Bring some friends!
We want this to be a big surprise for our boys, and watch their eyes light up when they see how many people come out to cheer them on!
After the game, watch the little guys get their season-end trophies, and enjoy a fundraiser BBQ* to help support the Codoni Family. There will also be a raffle drawing. We have an autographed Cal Ripken book, a signed Kirk Reuter (most wins by a SF Giant left-hander, ever) baseball, we have gift and wine baskets, a free week at the SRJC baseball camp and other things keep coming in! Joey plans to be at the game, too! You can read more about Joey Codoni and his journey at this blog: http://welovejoey.blogspot.com/.
Please feel free to tell ALL your friends and bring them out to the game! The bigger the crowd, the better! We want this to be a day the boys won't forget, and a very memorable experience for Joey.
We are going to make our very own magic happen on a tiny ball field in Rohnert Park. To cap off a great season for our Cal Ripken A's, to benefit the Codoni Family, to have some FUN – please join us! Be a part of what is sure to be an unforgettable day.
* Once the game is over, we are going to have a Codoni Family Benefit BBQ & raffle. We are asking a $10 donation. All proceeds will go directly to the Codoni Family to help defray the costs for Joey's heart surgeries, and other treatments he's undergone.
This is turning into a big event. We have expectations that more than 100 people will be at the game. The kids will be amazed and maybe even a little nervous!
In the end, this is all happening to give Joey the feeling his team and community haven't forgotten him. Let's make it as memorable as we can.
