Pass the Hat 2022
Annual benefit baseball game between Benedictine College Prep
and St. Christopher's School
Location: RF&P Stadium Field (3400 Mountain Rd Glen Allen, VA 23060)
Date: April 9th, 2022
Pass the Hat began 12 years ago as an effort to bring rival schools together for a great cause. Each year, Benedictine and St. Christopher's varsity baseball teams meet at RF&P Stadium Field for a game of baseball and to help raise money for Jacob's Chance.
Earlier that morning, both teams come to River City Buddy Ball's baseball game and help facilitate our adapted game. Their athletes get the chance to meet ours and strengthen their understanding of adapted sports and the importance of inclusion.
During the game that evening, a Jacob's Chance player throws out the first pitch and the game begins! During the game, Jacob's Chance participants and teen volunteers pass "hats" around the crowd and collect donations for Jacob's Chance.
Jacob's Chance offers full season athletics year-round, and no one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay. Pass the Hat is River City Buddy Ball's largest fundraiser of the year, and the money raised helps keep registration costs low and provide financial assistance so everyone can play sports. Thank you for supporting our mission and helping us "make great things happen"!
