High Five: Five Fun Weekend Events in the Valley
You can take part in several fun events this weekend, while helping out some valley charities. From Ninja Turtles on the diamond to celebrating life and making wishes come true, we've gathered all you need to know in this week's High Five.
-The Grizzlies are in town for a four-game homestand. Saturday the team will wear Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-themed jerseys and hats as they take on the Salt Lake Bees. Those jerseys will then be auctioned off after the game. Proceeds will benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central California. Also, the first two-thousand fans through the gates will receive a tin lunch box.
-Watch as the Visalia Rawhide baseball team takes on the Modesto Nuts. Friday is Free Money Night. Every ticket scanned at the gate will be entered in a drawing for free Rawhide bucks. The grand prize is $100. All-American Saturday is fundraiser in honor of fallen Visalia soldier Keith Williams. $2 from every ticket sold will go to a scholarship fund in his memory. He was killed in last week in Afghanistan.
