Thursday’s baseball game between the Frisco RoughRiders and the Springfield Cardinals was a special one for City House.
The Frisco RoughRiders Foundation presented City House with a monetary grant of $1,000, as one of their gifts for 2013. The presentation was made on the field in the middle of the first inning. City House Executive Director Teresa Keenan and Development Director Lora Farris were on hand to take part with RoughRiders Director of Community Development LaShawn Moore and mascot Deuce.
The RoughRiders Foundation said that City House has been chosen because of the invaluable work its does serving the runaway and homeless youth in our community.
“When reviewing all of the applications for grants, City House stood out to us and our entire foundation board,” Moore said. “The work City House does is tremendous and has made an impact in our community for a long time. It is exciting to see the growth and expansion plans for Frisco too.”
City House appreciates the participation that the RoughRiders Foundation puts forth in the community.
“We are honored to receive this grant from the Frisco RoughRiders Foundation,” Keenan said. “It was a wonderful evening of baseball and we always enjoy coming out to Dr Pepper Ballpark. The RoughRiders are a great member of the community.”
Moore says being active is an important part of the RoughRiders’ mission.
“Our focus is on Collin County and our community as a whole,” she said. “It’s what we like to do; we’re not just a baseball organization. We like to be in our community. We like to give back either through our time or financially. We want to support organizations like City House, which does so much for kids.
