First Responders Appreciation Day
March 25, 2020
A local organization and the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation are teaming up for First Responders Appreciation Day to be held at the Field of Dreams Movie Site Saturday, July 25th. Roman Weinberg, Director of Operations, with Go The Distance Baseball, LLC, says gates will open at noon with festivities planned throughout the day. As a precursor to the highly anticipated game at the Movie Site in August, the police departments representing the cities of New York and Chicago will take the Field under the lights for a 9-inning baseball game at 5:30 pm. Proceeds from this fundraiser event will go toward the Dubuque County Emergency Responder Training Facility, Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, and New York Police Department Widows and Children’s Fund. Other festivities include tours provided every half hour, a silent auction, a three-part skills competition with a chance to win two White Sox regular season game tickets, inflatables, face-painting, time for catch on the Field, and more.
