The proceeds from the event, a family-friendly party featuring local comedians, as well as games, will go towards Okanagan baseball teams’ gear, facilities, and travel costs for the upcoming seasons for the various teams.

Summerhill Winery and Steamwhistle Brewing will be serving beverages, as well as a silent auction which includes Seattle Mariners tickets.
