Military families with youth aged 3-10 were invited for a special USO Discovery Kids’ Brunch at the Ballpark with the Chicago White Sox as part of their Season of Giving. On November 3, nearly 150 currently serving military and military family members were treated to games, a balloon artist, a face painter, crafts, photos with Southpaw, and a tasty brunch prepared by Levy Restaurants. Guests also received hands-on learning about features of the park at the discovery table with field grass, pitcher’s mound clay, a light bulb from the giant ballpark lights, and a baseball cut in half!
Thanks to our friends at the Chicago White Sox for hosting our USO Discovery Kids and their families.
