Child living in Salvation Army shelter to throw out first pitch
Community Emergency Preparedness Night at Sky Sox Stadium, Aug. 31
A homeless child living at The Salvation Army’s R.J. Montgomery Center will have the honor of throwing out the first pitch in Friday night’s Colorado Springs Sky Sox game vs. the Las Vegas 51’s.
The evening will host the 3rd Annual Community Emergency Preparedness Night at Sky Sox Stadium. The event begins at 5:00 p.m. and is free. The first pitch will be before the 7:05 p.m. game time. Tickets are standard ticket prices for those who wish to stay.
The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services’ (EDS) mobile canteen will be on site to serve food to volunteers at the event, as well as share how EDS responds to disasters such as the Waldo Canyon Fire. Those who visit the canteen will have chance to win an emergency preparedness kit.
Community Emergency Preparedness Night will help the community get prepared, trained and involved in the event of an emergency. There will be fun activities and learning opportunities for all ages such asa helicopter flyover from Penrose St. Francis Flight for Life and mascots from many agencies to greet the kids.
