The Washington Nationals are hosting their 3rd Annual UVA College Day on Saturday, June 24 when they take on the Cincinnati Reds. Join the UVA Club of Washington as we cheer on former UVA baseball star Ryan Zimmerman, Racing President Mr. Jefferson, and our Washington Nationals! The promotion will incorporate several UVA elements throughout the game. The past two years, former UVA basketball star Justin Anderson and former UVA football star Morgan Moses threw the first pitches, Cavman and our cheerleaders & dance team appeared at the game, the Nats played The Good Old Song, UVA alumni sang the National Anthem, concessions stands served UVA themed food (resembling the Gus Burger) and drink specials, and Racing President Tom won the Presidents Race!
Prior to the game, the UVA Club of Washington will be hosting a pregame social event at Willie’s Brew and Crew (300 Tingey St SE, Washington, DC 20003) from 2:00-4:00pm. We hope to see you there for an opportunity to meet other local UVA alumni, alumni from several surrounding UVA Clubs, and students who are in the Washington DC area for the summer.
As part of our day at the ballpark, our club will also be collecting donations for Horton’s Kids (led by a UVA alum!) and its “Back to School Drive” during our pregame social. Horton’s Kids needs your help so that at-risk children in DC can start school prepared and ready to learn: Operation Backpacks aims to collect 205 durable backpacks and school supplies for 115 children in grades K-5, and 90 children in grades 6-12. Please bring an item to donate, such as a backpack or school supplies like loose leaf paper, #2 pencils, glue sticks, composition notebooks, etc.
