The George Mason High School baseball team’s inaugural Diamond Dreams fundraising game is back on, after being cancelled due to inclement weather last month.
Next Thursday, May 15, when the Mustangs host Strasburg High School, they’ll be playing to raise funds and awareness for children’s health.
Diamond Dreams games are hosted to help raise awareness and funds for the Children’s National Medical Center and pediatric cancer research.
Thomas Jefferson Elementary School second-grade student Carson King, a cancer survivor, will throw out the first pitch of the game.
The game begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5.
Items donated by the Washington Nationals, Top Golf, Jefferson District Golf Course, the Washington Wizards, the Washington Capitals, the Richmond Flying Squirrels, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and others will be auctioned at the game for funds. Tickets to sporting events and assorted autographed memorabilia are included in the auction. Special T-shirts will also be sold to raise funds.
Those who wish to donate who are unable to attend the game can visit childrensnational.donordrive.com and search for “George Mason High School.”
