Children’s Fund has partnered with the Inland Empire 66ers to create a contest for children ages 5 – 12. To enter the children will draw a picture of what they will work hard to be when they grow up and explain in up to 50 words why.
“Children’s Fund is dedicated to building strong children, giving hope for brighter tomorrows,” states Erin Phillips, president & CEO of Children’s Fund. “This contest gives the kids an opportunity to think about who they want to be, instilling goals that will drive them to work hard in school and become who they dream of being.”
The contest runs from March 15 through April 15, 2013. The winner of the contest will win 10 tickets for their family and friends to watch as the winner leads the Children’s Fund Parade Against Child Abuse with mascot Bernie, tosses out the first pitch at the Inland Empire 66ers game against the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, and then settles in the seats with hotdogs, popcorn and drinks for all 10 guests on Tuesday, April 23, 2013. The parade begins at 6:15 p.m. and will be inside the San Manuel Stadium, walking around the ball field. The game begins at 7:05 p.m.
“This is a great night to watch the 66ers Angel Affiliate play the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes,” says Joe Hudson, general manager of San Manuel Stadium. “It is also $2 Tuesday which means it will only cost $2 for parking, $2 tickets, and $2 for hotdog, popcorn or soft drink. It’s a great way to spend quality time with your family at a very reasonable price, and watch a great baseball game.”
