Big Brothers Big Sisters join SMU baseball team to raise money for local kids

WINONA, Minn., — Big Brothers Big Sisters of the 7 Rivers Region Winona Office will be hosting a raffle with the Saint Mary’s University baseball team on Saturday, April 17. This event — free and open to the public — will take place during the doubleheader against Augsburg University, beginning at 1 p.m. at Max Molock Field.

Raffle tickets will be sold until the top of the seventh inning of the first game for a chance to win gift cards to Ground Round and Country Kitchen — totaling $50 — with all proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the 7 Rivers Region Winona Office.

Tickets will cost $1 for one ticket and $5 for six, with no limit to the amount of tickets to be purchased. After the first game, raffle finalists will be drawn and will participate in a baseball bat spin race to determine the winners.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit organization whose mission is to effectively match children with caring mentors to share time, experiences, friendship and fun that will help children become caring, confident and competent adults.
