The School of Exercise Science (SES) and the Department of Athletics invites the Barry community to Share the Power of a Wish ® at the First-Pitch Carnival.
Date: Friday, April 26
Time: 6 – 8 p.m. | First pitch at 6 p.m.
Location: Buccaneer Softball Field
Over the course of the year, SES and the Buccaneer athletes have been working to raise $10,000 to fund the wishes of two children. Help them meet their final goal when they welcome a Make-A-Wish family to throw out the first pitch at Friday’s softball game. The event will feature a carnival atmosphere with raffles, games and prizes, and a dunk tank.
All proceeds go to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of South Florida. For additional information, contact Jamie Carrig at 305-899-4823.
About the Make-A-Wish kids Barry is sponsoring:
Idalia is a 10-year-old girl from Miami who is battling a life-threatening immunodeficiency . She loves the color green, watching the Disney channel and eating pizza. When Make-A-Wish Southern Florida met with Idalia and her family, she knew that her most heartfelt wish was have a TV and an IPAD.
Khalid is a 6-year-old boy from Miami who has sickle cell. His favorite color is red and his favorite food is pizza. When at home he enjoys watching Sponge Bob and playing with his brother. Khalid knew that his most heartfelt wish was to go on a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World® along with his family.
