CCDS 4th Annual Night at the Valley Cats
On July 21, 2014, Catholic Charities Disabilities Services held its 4th annual Night at the Valley Cats. The event offered everyone in the CCDS community (individuals, staff, family, and friends) the chance to have a little fun together, while raising money for those in need. The game started out with CCDS’s own Leroy Hendrix throwing out the first pitch!
Attendees not only enjoyed the game, which the Valley Cats won, but were treated to a picnic-style dinner, a souvenir Valley Cats cap, and a Johnny Evers bobblehead. Children in attendance even had the opportunity to meet some players and get autographs before the game.
The CCDS Night at the Valley Cats helped to raise funds for the Families in Need (FIN) Fund. The FIN fund provides immediate assistance to individuals who have urgent unmet needs. Historically, it has offered a helping hand to individuals struggling to pay for utility bills, rent, food, clothing, and other necessities. With $10 of every ticket sold going to the FIN fund, this event was able to help raise $400 for families in need.
