The Back in Blue Videogame Fundraiser is officially less than one week away!
On Saturday, April 13th from 9am-9pm members of Back in Blue – Brad, Nick, Reid and Andrew – will be playing baseball video games in the Jays Care Community Clubhouse inside the Skydome to raise awareness for the kids who are positively affected by your kind donations. Along with the event being live streamed at our SB Nation home on YouTube, Peter Bean from the Canadian Baseball Network will be hosting a Live Chat during the event.
Help us reach our $2000 goal and support our fundraiser by making a donation DIRECTLY TO JAYS CARE! Anyone who donates will have a chance to win a copy of 100 Things Blue Jays Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die and the top donor will receive our Top Prize! Watch the live stream to learn how the other prizes will be given away. Hopefully a few surprises as well!
