Take me out the ballgame…

On June 25th, you can root for the Mallards AND support the new Northside Fund!  The Mallards have invited the Northside Planning Council and the Northside Fund to be their nonprofit guest for Charter Community Connection Night on 6/25 at the Duck Pond.  The Northside Fund will receive $5 for every ticket sold through our account.  Go online to and enter “northside” in the Group Password, and you’ll be supporting the Northside Fund – a small grant program available to Northside groups working to improve their communities.

But wait!  There’s more!  If we sell at least 100 tickets, we’ll also get the opportunity to have the Northside Fund promoted on the radio, via the bigscreen video in the Duck Pond, and at the front gate on the 25th.  And we’ll be the recipient of the 50/50 raffle!  So get online, and dream of a warm summer night in the Duck Pond with your favorite Northside friends and neighbors!
