Event Description

Please join us for the 7th Annual Bats for Matt fundraiser to benefit Make-A-Wish Eastern NC! This year’s family-friendly outing begins with a varsity baseball game between Green Hope & Broughton high schools. The afternoon includes a silent auction, raffle and concessions along with entertainment from Magician Wayne Anderson, GameTruck and a performance by The Loreleis, UNC's premiere, all-female a cappella group. We will have inflatables, face painting and outdoor field games to make this a fun community event for all ages.

Gates open at 12:00pm and the first pitch will be thrown at 1:00. Tickets are $5 for adults and FREE for kids 10 and under!

Bats for Matt honors the memory of Matt Cossa, who lost his courageous battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in the spring of 2006. Proceeds from the event will benefit Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
