3/13 Good cause
The Cubs, Cubs Charities and Mesa HoHoKams are dedicating Friday’s game to the 100 Club of Arizona. The HoHoKams will donate all net proceeds from the 50/50 charity raffle sales during the game to the 100 Club of Arizona, which was formed to assist families of public safety officers and firefighters who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty. The club also provides resources to enhance their safety and welfare.
Prior to Friday’s game, Julie Ann Ashcroft will throw a first pitch in honor of her husband, Andrew Ashcroft, and the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshot firefighters who lost their lives battling a fire last June 30.
