To borrow a term from baseball, B’nai Brith Day at the Winnipeg Goldeyes’ game this past Sunday was a big hit.

Nearly 1,700 people showed up at Shaw Park for the eighth time that B’nai Brith has hosted its “Afternoon with the Goldeyes” event. The event is a community service project that provides representatives and benefactors from local agencies the opportunity to attend the game and enjoy the afternoon. This year, more than 60 agencies participated, including Jewish Child & Family Service and Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Club and CancerCare Manitoba.

It was without question a “whole package” experience for all those who attended. In addition to game tickets, there were special arrangements for wheelchairs when needed, a delightful hamburger lunch with loads of snacks, including donuts for dessert. There were plenty of giveaways, including water bottles with the B’nai Brith logo.

Lunch was provided by Salisbury house.
B’nai Brith Canada thanks the Goldeyes organization and all those who helped organize and helped make the event as wonderful as it was.

Photos of the event can be accessed on the B’nai Brith Flickr account  and the Goldeyes’ Facebook page.
