Go 'Gades, Fight AIDS: ARCS and the Renegades BOTH Win!

ARCS held its very first “Go ‘Gades, Fight AIDS” event in conjunction with our local minor league baseball team, the Hudson Valley Renegades, on Monday, August 24, and Thursday, September 3, 2009. Over 80 ARCS/Renegades fans gathered at the Dutchess Stadium–affectionately known as “the Dutch”–for free hot dogs, free sodas and complementary Renegades caps. If you haven’t been to a ‘Gades game, we highly recommend it! It’s a fun, inexpensive treat for all kinds of families, featuring lots of games and activities in between innings.

The son of one of our staffers, a young man named Jeremiah, threw out the ceremonial first pitch for ARCS on the 24th, and our very own Jana Fernandes showed off her pitching skills for us on the 3rd. We gathered in the general admission section behind our Hudson Valley AIDS Walk banner and watched the home team trounce the Tri-City Valley Cats. For the second game, the ‘Gades fought the Brooklyn Cyclones, the farm team for the New York Mets. The entire stadium was in for a surprise treat when Carlos Beltran, center fielder for the Mets, came to play against the Renegades. Despite their star power, the Cyclones submitted to the ‘Gades in a tense, bottom of the ninth showdown.

Special thanks to the Renegades sales team for all their hard work and dedication in making these two events happen! We’re already looking forward to next year’s season.
