The High School of Sports Management (HSSM) is partnering with the Brooklyn Cyclones, Soles4Souls and the South Brooklyn community in organizing “Sneaker Night,” a community based event. The event will be held on Thursday, August 23, 2012 at MCU Park home of the Brooklyn Cyclones.
Soles4Souls is a non-profit organization based in Nashville, Tennessee whose mission is to provide shoes to people in need suffering from disasters and living in abject poverty. The organization has distributed shoes and sneakers to people in more than 130 countries worldwide. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed over 19 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes.
“Sneaker Night” is a way for students, staff, parents, and community partners to also share in this philanthropic effort, while enjoying a night at the ballpark. This promises to be a memorable experience for all involved. We invite all New Yorkers and fans of baseball to participate with us.
Families and fans arriving at the ballpark can bring a pair of new or gently worn sneakers. Soles4Souls Footwear containers will be strategically placed at the ballpark. The game begins at 7 p.m. Gates open at 5:30 p.m.
