Aces Raise $3,690 in 'Swings' for Sparks Middle Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

From the Reno Aces:

The Reno Aces raised $3,690 to benefit the SMS Compassion Fund during the Swings for Sparks event on Saturday, the club announced today.

"We were overwhelmed with the response to Swings for Sparks, and our entire staff stayed nearly three hours beyond the closing time to make sure everyone had a chance to participate," said Aces Chief Operating Officer Eric Edelstein. "We are all proud to be a part of the healing process for those affected by this tragedy."

Throughout the day, 156 fans took swings on the field at Aces Ballpark. Each pitch had a suggested minimum donation of $1, with many fans taking advantage of the 25 pitches for $20 bulk deal.

All donations and proceeds from the event will go directly to the SMS Compassion Fund, set up by the Community Foundation of Western Nevada.
