How ‘bout dem O’s!
Thursday, August 30, 2012
This past week the Baltimore Orioles personally sent their limo and Orioles Bird to pick up Casey Cares child Kevin, his family and at home and whisked them away to Camden Yards for the VIP treatment, a tour of the stadium, batting practice and special tickets to the game. Celebrating his 9th birthday and first day of fourth grade, Kevin, who suffers with LCH, a rare blood disease, got a day out and away from his treatment at Sinai Children’s Hospital. This event was part of the Family Festivities Program of the Casey Cares Foundation offering families an opportunity to spend time together at sporting events, concerts, or local attractions to name a few.
Kevin and his family have been with Casey Cares since 2011 and have enjoyed more than 15 activities including sporting events, Orioles Fan Fest, Monster Jam, meeting the Harlem Globe Trotters, and much more.
“This is such an awesome afternoon for Kevin and his family to get away from their stressful routine,” stated Casey Baynes, Founder of Casey Cares. “We are so grateful to the Orioles for making memories like this happen for Casey Cares children. They are a great team on and off the field.”
