As recipients of the December, 2014 Braves Foundation $1,000 grant, The Next Stop was highlighted at the Gwinnett Braves game on June 6th. We were told that we would be presented the “big check” on the field in between innings.
We were excited to do this….AND have our game attending members stand alongside founders Vicki and Stu. Apparently the check presenter did not feel the same way as she had to be mindful of the time constraint between innings. Right before we were to go onto the field, we were told that not all 16 members could follow us–only a couple could.
Well….all of a sudden it was time to go….and there was no stopping our members! After all, we had told them they should follow us and re-directing doesn’t happen very easily for them.
Even though our check presenter was saying under her breath “make them stop!”, we all got there and smiled for the camera and got off the field without any delay of game. Mission accomplished. Thank you Gwinnett Braves!
