Benefiting Orioles Foundation Music & Arts Education Scholarships
Fourth Annual NASHVILLE'S MUSIC ROW COMES TO THE BALLPARK Charity Benefit
- VIP Cocktail reception at 6:30 PM at the Orioles Training Complex
- VIP Nashville's Music Row Songwriter Round
Hosted by Dreamlined Entertainment Songwriter Margaret Valentine with Nashville Legend, Songwriters Hall of Fame and GRAMMY-Winning Hit Maker Desmond Child, AMA-Winning and SESAC Nashville Music Awards Songwriter of the Year Matt McGinn, Musician-Actress MacKenzie Porter, Rolling Stone Artist You Need to Know Ryan Beaver and special guests.
A portion of proceeds from the weekend's events will fund the establishment of new Orioles Charitable Foundation Music & Arts Education Scholarships designed to offer arts education support to deserving young students in Sarasota, Baltimore and Nashville. This annual "Athletes & Artists Play for Kids" weekend fundraiser began four years ago with the first "Nashville Comes to the Ballpark" event and has steadily grown to include more programming, more supporters, and beginning last year, a ballpark concert performance by LOCASH to support selected charitable efforts.
Since its inception, "Nashville Comes to the Ballpark" has raised more than $250,000 for Nashville and Sarasota Charities including Music Health Alliance, Girls Inc., Library Foundation of Sarasota County, Sarasota Academy of the Arts and YMCA Foundation of Sarasota.
