The Opening Day Charity Block Party held by the Reds Community Fund will be on April 12. It will be located at the Banks near Great American Ball Park, at Joe Nuxhall Way and Freedom Way.
The block party to celebrate Opening Day for the Cincinnati Reds will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The game starts at 4:10 p.m.
The block party benefits the Reds Community Fund, which is dedicated to improving the lives of youth by leveraging the tradition of the Cincinnati Reds and the game of baseball. Since its inception in 2001, the Reds Community Fund has used baseball as a vehicle to reach out to kids. As the nonprofit arm of baseball’s first professional team, the Community Fund strives to create programming that connects under-served children with baseball and softball, while creating fundraising programs that connect baseball with the community. Whether it’s renovating baseball fields, providing opportunities to kids with disabilities, underwriting expenses for inner-city teams or hosting its “Reds Rookie Success League,” the Reds Community Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of youth through baseball.
The fund engages volunteers for several roles on opening day:
ID Booth – in charge of checking the participants ID’s and putting wristbands on them.
Beer Tent and Truck Sales – in charge of serving five-dollar beer to participants that have on the correct wristband.
Boone County Bourbon & Tito’s Handmade Vodka Tents – in charge of serving five dollar pre-made cocktails to those with the correct wristband.
Volunteers will be required to attend a mandatory training session to work at the event.
The training sessions are set for March 31 and April 6, both at 6 p.m. at the Procter and Gamble-MLB Cincinnati Reds Youth Academy, 2026 E Seymour Ave. The training will take no more than 90 minutes.
Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and two free tickets to a future Reds game.
Volunteers are asked to arrive on April 12 at 10:30 a.m. and work until roughly 3:30 p.m.
