Anyone who loves baseball would enjoy an evening at Oriole Park at Camden Yards to watch the Baltimore Orioles take on the Toronto Blue Jays. But what makes the baseball game on August 24, 2012 so special is not the added fireworks display scheduled after the game. It is the opportunity for attendees to cheer their home team while supporting a local nonprofit that has been working for more than three decades in and around Baltimore to protect the physical, emotional and spiritual lives of women and their unborn children.
Founded in 1980, the Center for Pregnancy Concerns provides women facing unplanned pregnancies with a place to explore their options in a non-threatening, comfortable environment. From offering women an ear to talk (i.e. counseling, support groups) to providing prenatal assistance (i.e. maternity clothes, sonograms) to helping ensure mothers have the proper baby supplies (i.e. car seats, bottles) - the Center for Pregnancy Concerns provides hands-on support to more than 1,200 clients per year at three locations in Baltimore.
"We offer a long list of services, all absolutely free, including pregnancy tests, material assistance, sonograms and post-abortion counseling ... We are excited to have the opportunity to gather at Camden Yards on August 24 to cheer for the O's and watch fireworks," said Carol Clews, the Executive Director of the Center for Pregnancy Concerns.
Clews hopes the general public will help the nonprofit raise funds by purchasing tickets from the Center for Pregnancy Concerns for the August 24 game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays. The tickets costs $13 and offer attendees upper reserve seats between home plate and first base.
