LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission is seeking sponsorships to send low income families to a professional baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Miami Marlins on August 26, at 1:00 pm.
The local American Indian community will provide singing and dancing before the start of the game. The youth will be able to participate in a "Run the Bases" immediately after the game.
“This is not a fundraiser. All funds and tickets will be distributed to low income families with attention on children who are in the Indian Child Welfare Act program,”
said Ronald Andrade, director of the Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission.
The Commission is seeking to raise enough funds to purchase 500 tickets at a reduced rate. Tickets will be distributed through low income service providers, such as the Indian Health Clinics, United American Indian Involvement and the American Indian Healing Center.
American Indian youth will also participate in the Dodger Backpack Give-A-Way back to school program.
The Commission wishes to thank Edison International, Southern California Edison for thier sponsorship donation to the American Indian community.
Please contact Ron Andrade at 805.404.1490 for more information on how you can become a sponsor.
