King George Little League Gives Back

March 28  Family Celebration at Sealston Sports Complex

   Games, food and lots of fun for kids and families will be the order of the day on Saturday, March 28, at Sealston Sports Complex, adjacent to Sealston Elementary School.
   The kickoff event at the new Sealston Sports Complex is being jointly hosted by King George Little League, the KG REDS Challenger Division Baseball and King George Parks & Recreation.  A formal dedication of the new county sports facility is expected to be scheduled later this spring.
   The King George community is invited to the family celebration to help Little League celebrate county athletes and the volunteers who support them.  
   The free event begins at 10:00 a.m. and will run until 3:00 p.m.  The Baltimore Orioles’s mascot will be on hand, along with members of the Baltimore Oriole Advocates.
   It will include balloons, games, various contests, face painting and other activities.  While admission is free, attendees are asked to consider bringing a canned good or other non-perishable food item for donation to the King George Food Bank.
   The organization will also be accepting donations of gently-used sports equipment to donate to the Baltimore Oriole Advocates “Cardboard to Leather” program.
   Linda Davis, vice president of King George Challengers Division Baseball told The Journal, “Every charitable organization survives through the generosity and support of the local community.  This year, we are making a concerted effort to give back to the county in this special way.  We truly appreciate its continued support.” 
   Concession items will be for sale, expected to include hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn and beverages.
   If your team or group would like to participate with Little League with an exhibition or other entry in the celebration, please call Linda Davis at 540-809-8205 or P&R’s Tim Smith at 775-4FUN.
