MITCH’S MISSION TO HOLD FIRST FUNDRAISER AT UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI REC CENTER
“Playdate with the Bearcats” to benefit pediatric cancer & blood disease patients CINCINNATI, OH, January 24, 2011.
With the support of the University of Cincinnati Bearcat football team, non-‐profit foundation Mitch’s Mission will host their first fundraiser, “Playdate with the Bearcats,” on Saturday, February 19, 2011 to benefit pediatric cancer and blood disease patients. The event will be held from 4-7 p.m.at the UC Campus Rec Center on the University of Cincinnati campus (2600 Clifton Ave., Cincinnati, 45221).
Designed as a carnival-like, family-fun event, UC Bearcat football players, the Bearcat Mascot and various other UC sports teams will be on hand to play games and interact with fans. “We wanted to do something that would be fun for a family during the dreary days of February,” said Dee Stone, organizer of the Playdate. The event will offer games such as corn hole, kid-friendly drills put together by UC Coaches, swimming, rock-climbing, face‐painting, food and music. There will also be a basket raffle.
Cost for the event is $15/person or $50/family. All proceeds will go to send kids from the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to summer camp for a week.
