Doing Right in Black Rock

Our friends at the First Amendment Club are throwing an unusual fundraiser on Thursday, April 22, at the Polish Cadets Hall, at the corner for Grant and Amherst Streets. The party runs 5-10pm.
The worthy beneficiaries are the Black Rock/Riverside Little Leagues, which claim to have been stiffed of funding promised them by State Senator Antoine Thompson. The First Amendment Club hopes the event—$10 for all the pizza and beer you can consume—will raise enough money to keep the kids in uniforms and baseballs while they wait for the state money to materialize.
Live music will be provided by noted up-and-comer David Nolf and his band (pictured below), and there will be lots of prizes and games, including a customized version of pin the tail on the donkey. We leave it to you to imagine who will play the role of the donkey.
Come join Black Rock and Riverside as they rally for their kids. Check out tomorrow’s Riverside Review for more details.
