Los Angeles,CA and Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
Mixed Roots Foundation is proud to announce its 4th annual season of its signature ‘Adoptee Day’ / ‘Adoptee Night’ sporting events that will raise awareness and funds for the adoption and foster care community in two cities with three different major league sports teams including the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Twins between May and July 2015. Mixed Roots Foundation’s goal this year is to provide 1,000 adopted and foster youth unique opportunities to attend their first game by partnering with various major league sports teams as well as with local media, individuals, businesses, adoption and foster care and community organizations to reach their goal.
“We are so excited that we will be hosting our 4th season of our signature sporting events this year beginning in May which not only is recognized as National Foster Care Month, but we will also be celebrating our 4th Anniversary as an organization,” stated Holly Choon Hyang Bachman, founder and president of Mixed Roots Foundation. “It is going to be a great season and we encourage every individual, business and/or organization in the community to get involved by donating or sponsoring tickets, so we can send more adopted and foster youth to one or all three of our special games.”
WHO & WHAT:
Mixed Roots Foundation hosted its inaugural ‘Adoptee Night’ with the World Champion San Francisco Giants in 2012 and has since worked with the Atlanta Braves (2012), Los Angeles Dodgers (2013-2014), MN Twins (2013-2014), San Jose Earthquakes (2013) and the Los Angeles Sparks (2015) to provide a special opportunity for all who have been touched by adoption and foster care to come together as a community to raise awareness, raise funds and have fun at a sports game.
