Hops host third annual fundraising banquet
The Hillsboro Hops will hold their third annual Fund Banquet this Saturday, Jan. 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the NW Events & Environments building at 2900 N.W. Ave. #100.
The event will benefit the Hillsboro Hops Fund, a charitable organization through the Hillsboro Community Foundation. Highlights of the banquet include a cocktail hour, silent and live auctions, a sit-down dinner and special guest speakers from the realm of professional baseball, including Hops Manager Shelley Duncan, Arizona Diamondbacks Director of Player Development Mike Bell, Arizona Diamondbacks Vice President and Special Assistant to the General Manager Bob Gebhard, Hops Pitching Coach Mike Parrott and Hops Hitting Coach Jose Amado.
Last year, the banquet raised thousands of dollars that made a significant impact on the progress of the funds first project, restoring the fields of Hillsboros own Evergreen Middle School.
