For the past seve years The Homewood Suites has teamed up with STLSportspage.com to put on a charity event which benefits Rainbows for Kids in St. Louis and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Palm Beach. The event is free of charge and open to all fans of STLSportsPage.com and any guests staying at the Homewood Suites. Carson Kelly was the guest last year, shown in photo with Mike Trim of WPTV News in West Palm Beach and Rob Rains.
The Spring Training Charity Bash features free food and drink as well as a silent auction, but the highlight of the event has always been a player from the St. Louis Cardinals who attends and entertains on a sports panel with Trim and Rains.
Trim, a Cardinals fan, originally from Hermann, MO is a television anchor and always donates his time to do the panel with Rob Rains of STLSportsPage.com. The photo, above, rightis the 2017 event featuring Aledmys Diaz.
After the panel discussion there was a barbecue and the Cardinals fans got to eat hamburgers and hot dogs.
The best part of the party is raising money for two great charities. Proceeds from the Baseball Bash are divided between the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Palm Beach and Rainbows for Kids in St. Louis. Tyler Hammond, shown in photo below was a member of Rainbows for Kids when he was a child. He had multiple organ transplants, but was able to participate on the Rainbows for Kids Baseball Team and all the activities designed for families with children in treatment. He has now graduated from college and is a volunteer with the organization. He is shown in the picture with Daniel Ponce de Leon.
So next year be sure to plan a trip to Spring Training and check with us for the date of the party when you dol
