(Editor’s Note: The following info is from a press release issued this week by World Series Park.)
World Series Park in Saugus will host a fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) this Sunday, Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Originally scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday, Oct. 30), the date has been changed because of the rainy weather that was forecast during the earlier part of the weekend.
A Halloween costume contest will be featured – kids and adults can come in costume with the winner of “Best Costume” selected. All-day entertainment will be featured, starting at 10 a.m. Performing will be Patty Vellucci, The Memory Laners, Uncle Steve Furbish, the band Forever Unknown and Beat ConnXtionz Dance Company.
The coordinator for the event is Saugus’s own Dario Pizzano, a professional baseball player and a member of the Saugus Little League team that competed in the Little League World Series in 2003. He has been actively involved in fundraising for Mission Stadiums for Multiple Sclerosis (MS4MS) for the last two years. His mother, Traci, has suffered with MS for several years, and Dario wanted to be part of helping raise money for research to perhaps someday find a cure.
The all-day event will have a fall theme with hayrides, pumpkins, corn on the cob, cider, cider donuts and pony rides. There will be a ceremony on the field featuring the 2003 Saugus Little League Team. Food, booths, an auction, a raffle, the famous Carpenito Real Estate Lottery Ticket House Raffle, a display of classic cars and some surprises willround out the day. The event will culminate with a softball game between the 2003 Saugus Little League team and a combined team of Saugus Police and Firefighters.
