The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore and the Lakewood BlueClaws announced an expanded community partnership that includes a Girl Scout Family Night scheduled at FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood on Friday, June 21, at 7:05 p.m. Thousands of Girl Scouts of all ages, their families and friends will participate in the evening that will feature activities that showcase programming offered by Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore and the impact those programs make in girls’ lives.
The baseball game is the signature 2019 event of the updated partnership between the Girl Scouts and the BlueClaws. “The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore have always enjoyed the strong support of the BlueClaws,” said Eileen M. Higgins, CEO, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. “Our new community partnership takes our collaboration to another level and will directly benefit our girls.”
Staff from both the Girl Scouts and the BlueClaws are working closely together to ensure the game against the West Virginia Power is unlike any other Girl Scout baseball experience. Planned highlights include pre-game and in-game activities such as an on-field parade, contests, exciting Girl Scout exhibitions and post-game fireworks. Gates open for pre-game activities at 6:00 p.m.
"The BlueClaws are very excited to partner with the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore for what promises to be a full night of fun on June 21st," said BlueClaws Team President Joe Ricciutti. "Girl Scouts and their families from all around the Shore will be able to take part in the best of the BlueClaws - from the boardwalk games, to great food, and fantastic post-game fireworks show!"
Tickets for Girl Scout Night are $11 each and include a hotdog, fountain soda, ice cream and one free boardwalk game. There is an optional on-field overnight open to registered Girl Scouts for an additional $10 and includes a movie, snacks and continental breakfast the following morning. Ticket proceeds will benefit local programs and activities for Girl Scouts from Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
