The Diamond Dream Foundation (DDF), Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with Doc Walker's ProView to host a networking charity event to benefit the DDF's nonprofit mission. The event will be held on Wednesday May 27, 2015 from 7pm to 10pm, at the Crystal City Sports Pub in Arlington, VA. Join former Washington Senators and Baltimore Orioles to celebrate the magic of baseball and raise awareness for a charitable cause.
"In the beginning I wanted to share my love of baseball with children who otherwise may not have the opportunity to be part of a team," stated Robert A. Duff, Founder and Chairman of the Diamond Dream Foundation. "Now we've expanded our mission to include healthy living programs so the impact we have on children's lives will be even greater."
The event will feature a silent auction with autographed sports memorabilia and other items, an autograph station, and the opportunity to meet some of baseball’s historical figures. Mingle with some of Washington, D.C.’s most esteemed legends of baseball including Fred Valentine, Harold “Hank” Allen, James “Jim” Coats, Frank “Hondo” Howard, and Ronald “Horn” Hanson. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and the opportunity to network with local businesses and entrepreneurs while raising money for the Diamond Dream Foundation.
The DDF's partnership with ProView allows the charity an even greater audience with ProView's large network of business people and the support of veteran Redskin Doc Walker. All proceeds from the event will benefit the mission of the Diamond Dream Foundation.
