Family Day with the West Michigan White Caps - stay tuned for more information on the date

What you can look forward to:  An all-you-can-eat lunch with hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks…what is not to like about that?  Well, add in a private deck to watch the West Michigan White Caps…and it keeps getting better!  Families will have a chance to get players’ autographs, run/wheel around the bases after the game, private behind-the-scenes tours of the scoreboard, face painting, and pictures with the mascot Crash…now that is a great family day!  Said the Hartwell family of this event perviously, 

“Our family would like to thank you for the wonderful family day at the Whitecaps! My husband and older son usually go to a game each year together, which is nice because they get some time alone…but that began after trying to attend a game as a family and having it go horribly. We are grateful because we felt relaxed and we enjoyed the game, just like the families in the stands. The Pioneer Deck made it possible for our son Mikey to watch the game the way he feels most comfortable. He was able to walk around, sling his slinky, rock back and forth and make his loud and happy sounds! It was outstanding! We also enjoyed the food and atmosphere of being with so many families like our own. It was nice to meet new people and receive hugs from those we've gotten to know in the disability community over the years. Thank you so much for making our kids feel like VIPs, making food and bathroom trips not a nightmare, but easy and successful, and for giving us wonderful memories of watching a game together! We are truly grateful.”

Testimonials

Grace-Kolenda-wetb.jpg

 

Can you imagine the joy we felt when we received news that we were receiving a scholarship from Family Hope Foundation to help pay for Grace's Occupational Therapy at The Center for Childhood Development? Steven and I still get emotional talking about this today. Family Hope Foundation understands the emotional and financial strain that comes with helping a child with special needs.

The scholarship was the difference between our daughter continuing to develop her skills or experiencing setbacks during her fundamental years. Thank you for believing in Grace and making this dream a reality for so many families.
