It's getting closer. Complete with pregame ceremonies featuring a Spirit Award, color guard, national anthem, and first pitch with charter school students and Building Hope President Joe Bruno, the organization is providing 10,000 three dollar tickets to charter school students and staff to see the Washington Nationals take on the Miami Marlins in their hunt for a wildcard spot in the playoffs.
Several unnamed sources have revealed that the chorus of Washington Latin Public Charter School will be performing as part of the pregame activities.
The event is a birthday celebration for Building Hope which has for the last decade often provided the only chance for charters in the nation's capital to obtain permanent classrooms for their students.
Many prominent organizations are providing generous support for the celebration, including Building Hope, MCN, Revolution Food, Arent Fox, BB&T, Brailsford & Dunleavy, Center for Education Reform, City Bridge Foundation, Dynamic Network Solutions, Eagle Bank, ED Ops, Focus, Forrester, Goldstar, Goulston Storrs, Howard Insurance, McGladry, Perkins/Eastman, Phil Battles, PMM, RAFFA, Ruppert Landscaping, Studio 27, Ten-Square, and the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools.
The first base gates open at 5:30 p.m., opening ceremonies start at 6:30 p.m., and the game is at 7:05 p.m. Tickets can be obtained by contacting Mr. Mark Medema at 312 622-1203 or emailing him at email@example.com.
