Friends of Rickwood to Partner with Magic Moments

•October 13, 2016 • Leave a Comment

The Friends of Rickwood and Magic Moments need your help!

On Saturday, October 22, the Friends will partner with Magic Moments to reveal to Elijah that his wish has been granted!  Event coordinator, Rebecca Hamaker Whitcomb, asks that everyone come out to Rickwood and cheer-on Elijah, as he circles the bases.   After he completes his home run trot, he will be led to the pitcher’s mound where fans will reveal to him a wonderful vacation surprise.  It will be an epic memory maker for this terrific kid!

All you need to do is bring yourself and friends.  Rebecca is taking care of everything else.

Feel free to share this event with all of your friends.

For additional information, you may contact Rebecca at
