Arts Night At The Birdcage

Got this in an e-mail and passing the info along.

For anyone going to the Canaries ball games, children have been decorating the second bases for each home game. It is so neat ... the artists are treated to a game with their family and get to go out on the field and their designed base is shown on the big lit up screen too. There will be a gallery of all the masterpieces. (I happen to personally know a couple of the young artists!) :-)



As you know, the Canaries have teamed up with the Arts Council to help us raise a little money this summer. For every double a Canaries player hits at a home game this season, the Arts Council makes money based on pledges we have received – to date we have raised over $2,500!

To highlight this program, kids ages 6-12 have been painting second bases that are used at all the home Canaries games. On August 12, Jeb Cooper – artist Ceca Cooper’s son – will be the featured base painter. AND, we all thought it would be fun to go to a game together before the season is over.

So we’re asking all arts lovers, organizations, artists, patrons to join us on the Party Deck at 6:30, Tuesday, August 12, to enjoy the game. Tickets are $20.00, and include the price of a ticket to the game plus all you can eat and drink for the evening. (You can also just purchase the game ticket and buy food and drink as you go…)

Please call Mallory at the Canaries if you are coming – she can arrange for you to pick up your tickets before the game rather than standing in the regular line. Her number is 333-0179.

Thanks much – and hope to see you at the ballpark!
