Congratulations to Jake Franzel, who got the chance to throw out the first pitch at a St. Louis Cardinals game! On Sunday, September 13th against the Atlanta Braves, Jake used his amazing experience at Busch Stadium to make a difference for Friends of Kids with Cancer! Jake's family teamed up with the Cards to make $36 tickets available for only $20, with the difference of each ticket going to Friends. They were able to raise a lot of money for our programs, thanks to all the wonderful people who showed up to support Jake on the big day.
Thank you to everyone who participated, and especially to Jake and his family for including our organization in his special day. And thank you to Rick Horton and the broadcast team on Channel 5 for replaying his throw, and for the kind words about Friends of Kids with Cancer.
