We’re less than a month away from opening day: The Masons4Mitts season officially starts on April 4, 2016 in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
Through this novel philanthropic program, regional teams of California lodges compete to fund baseball mitts for at-risk youth who participate in charitable programs through the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, and San Francisco Giants. Every mitt is embossed with the Masons of California logo and square and compass symbol. It’s a gesture that says: California Masons are here for our kids! At the conclusion of each campaign, Masons present a ceremonial check to the teams at the home plate of each ballpark.
Last year’s season was our most successful ever, raising more than $159,000 – and bringing mitts to nearly 8,000 children in need. To bring a mitt and the gifts of teamwork and leadership to a child in need, visit masons4mitts.org starting April 4, 2016.
