The Ballard Boys & Girls Club has just received $25,000 from the Sports Medicine Clinic, who has committed to be a sponsor for their 9th annual barbecue and auction. The theme for the Oct. 25 event is “Field of our Dreams,” and the Sports Medicine Clinic’s funds, in addition to money raised at the event, will go to renovate the club’s baseball field and to the club’s scholarship fund. “We are thrilled to receive this sponsorship,” Club Director Shelley Puariea said in a statement. “The Sports Medicine Clinic has been a staple in the community and we are honored by this partnership.”
According to the club, the Sports Medicine Clinic is celebrating 50 years of service and was looking for a way to give back to the Ballard community. In addition to the clinic, Mariners Care (the Mariners’ nonprofit foundation) will also be a sponsor, committing $10,000 to the club.
The event will be Oct. 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Ballard Boys & Girls Club (1767 NW 64th St). They’ll have a silent and live auction and a barbecue salmon dinner donated by the Ballard Masonic Lodge. The event is 21+, but child care will be available for kids ages 3 and up (parents must pre-register their children).
Tickets are available through the club website or by contacting Puariea at 206-954-2926.
