JAM and Kidsburgh Celebrate with Pittsburgh Riverhounds
There were 155 Avonworth community members in attendance. "The evening was incredible," said Maureen Frew, Digital Media Specialist at Avonworth Primary Center. "The kids were so delighted to be part of it."
JAM partnered with Kidsburgh - an online resource focusing on the people and ideas making Pittsburgh a better place to raise kids - who was already partnering with Pittsburgh Riverhounds.
An all-around great day for attendees. "[The best part was] watching the kids walk the players to the field," said Frew. "They were in awe of the team; also the coin toss which was done by Catheryn Behr and Elsa Garvaglia."
The first 500 kids through the gate 12 years and younger received a free #bethekindkid t-shirt. "The kids had a great time passing out the 500 #bethekindkid t-shirts, and told anyone that asked what [JAM and #bethekindkid] was all about," said Frew.
JAM is grateful for the opportunity. "We want to give a huge shout out to Kidsburgh for making this event happen for us," said Frew.
