Are you looking for a fun family or youth group activity this summer?
The TEARS Foundation, a 501 (c)(3)non-profit organization who seeks to compassionately assist newly bereaved families with their baby’s funeral expenses, and The Tacoma Rainiers present “Rock~N~Remember: Youth Honoring The Life of a Child”, an opportunity to get involved with the community, give back to the community and have fun!
“Rock~N~Remember” will be held on Sat. Aug. 30th at 4 p.m. at The Tacoma Rainiers’ Cheney Stadium. Youth members participating in Rock N’ Remember will form teams or participate as an individual and collect $25 pledges to rock in a rocking chair at the Tacoma Rainiers baseball game. For every $25 pledge, donors will receive a ticket to the Aug. 30th Rainiers game. The funds raised will go to The TEARS Foundation to help bereaved families honor the life of a child.
Who knew rocking in a rocking chair could be so much fun? The pre-game event is at Foss baseball fields, adjacent to Cheney Stadium. There will be food, games, and entertainment, all free to the participants in this event! All participants also receive one ticket to the Rainiers ball game that night. Teams are encouraged to express their creativity by developing their own team name and designing their own team t-shirt. Most creative team name and t-shirt wins a prize.
At 5 p.m., we will head to the stadium to meet and interact with Rhubarb, receive prizes, participate in a raffle and eat pizza (brought to us by Little Caesars)! At 6 p.m. the Tacoma Rainiers will open the gates and the participants will take turns Rock N’ back in the rocking chairs and enjoying good ol’ Rainiers’ baseball. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in Rainiers’ field games throughout the evening. We encourage you to invite your readers to come out for fun, food, games, and some good ol’ Rainiers baseball!
The registration form, informational flyer, and how to form a Team is available at our website www.thetearsfoundation.org – under the “News” Link. Participants must submit team roster on or before Aug. 3 and each participant must submit a registration form on or before Aug. 20th.
