Baseball Game Wrap Up

The Wrap Up! Lancaster Project had a very successful night at the June 24th game of the Lancaster Barnstormers, where WUL founder Angelia Reed threw the first pitch of the game as a part of her being honored by the Emerald Foundation’s Hometown Hero.  She did awesome!

Member of WUL were treated to great seats to watch the game, and we generated a lot of interest at the information table we had set up.  Thank you to all who visited us!

There was one special moment at the table when a woman came up to us.  She seemed like she was a bit down on her luck, but after we told her who we are and what we do, she perked up and said, “I took one of those scarves off a tree!”  She was quite happy to learn who we were, and we were glad to know that we made a difference in her life, too.

Here’s a video of Angelia throwing the first pitch!

We also have some great photo we’d like to share.  If you were in attendance at the game and took any photos or video, please pass them along to us on our Facebook page.
