Join us for quite the Baltimore experience--A taco & nacho bar at El Bufalo for a fiesta happy hour from 5:00pm-6:30pm upstairs--but the fun hasn't even begun! We will bus over to the Orioles game compliments of the O's with fun and games on the way, including Natty Bohs for the road. We will stay for the game and bus back to El Bufalo. 100% of the proceeds benefits the Center thanks to Ameriprise Financial, our premier sponsor for this event. Two ticket options are available. Option #1 includes taco/nacho bar, game tickets, transportation, Bohs & O's or the VIP option #2 includes all that plus two drink tickets at El Bufalo, free Orioles swag for only $15 more. Bring extra cash or credit card (we have a square) for some pretty cool raffles. Limited tickets, get yours today! To purchase your tickets, please contact our Fundraising and Events Development Coordinator, Bre Weathers, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
