Summerville Miracle League Annual “BBQ for Baseball” Fundraiser Set for April 8 & 9!

Need something to do this weekend? Mark your calendar to come out and enjoy some smokin’ live music and barbecue and help support some very special kids in their desire to play America’s game in the process. This year’s BBQ for Baseball fundraiser is being held Friday & Saturday, April 8-9, 2011  at 200 Trolley Road in Summerville, SC. Wings are the specialty of the night on Friday followed by Saturday’s ‘all you can eat’ BBQ.

Started in 1999, the Miracle League organization is dedicated to the idea that all children including special needs kids should have the opportunity to play baseball. Today, there are over 240 Miracle League fields in the U.S. Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia. These fields are specially designed to accommodate a variety of developmental challenges and pave the way for children, youth, and young adults to play baseball and experience the joy and camaraderie of team sports.

Chris Campeau with SeamonWhiteside + Associates’s Landscape Architecture department is an active member of the board of the Summerville Miracle League and will be on hand to keep the festivities rollin’. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication, Chris!

There’s No Place Like Home…

On Saturday (March 26), several SW+A staff volunteered to help the Charleston based charity Operation Home get some things done around the house for a local homeowner. Operation Home works with low-income, seniors, and special needs households throughout the Tri-county to make sure that their homes are both accessible and livable. This weekend’s project involved building a handicap ramp for the homeowner and adding a bit of landscaping to make home a bit more welcoming.

 

SW+A would like to thank Jason James of Ecoscape for generously donating the plant material that went into the landscape improvements and also recognize our employees, Cameron Liebetrau and her sister Landon, Sara Joyce, Lee Gastley, Rusty Blake, William O’Neal, Ike Boatwright, and Betsy Ellingson, for giving their time and talent to this very worthwhile project. Way to go everyone!
