LAN­CASTER — Christ­mas in July is al­most here.

Grace Re­sources’ an­nual mid-sum­mer Christ­mas in July fundraiser is July 14 at JetHawks Sta­dium when the JetHawks play against the San Jose Gi­ants.

The game will start at 5:05 p.m.

Tick­ets for the game cost $6 each if pur­chased at Grace Re­source Cen­ter, 45134 Sierra High­way.

Santa Claus and his helper will be there on his way back from the Bahamas on their way to the North Pole.

Christ­mas mu­sic will be played through­out the night. Ev­ery child un­der 12 years old will get a free toy with pur­chase of a game ticket, and a bi­cy­cle will be given away af­ter ev­ery in­ning.

“The purpose of this event is three­fold: It is a fundraiser to help feed thou­sands of peo­ple through­out the sum­mer,” Grace Re­source Cen­ter Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Steve Baker said.

“We also plan to have a lot of fun while re­mind­ing the Val­ley that Grace Re­source Cen­ter helps tens of thou­sands of peo­ple through­out the year, not just dur­ing the tra­di­tional hol­i­days.”

SoCal Gas Com­pany is the ma­jor spon­sor to help un­der­write the cost of the event and pro­vide life-sav­ing in­for­ma­tion on SoCal Gas pro­grams. Other spon­sors in­clude All Val­ley RV Cen­ter and Ad­vance Coun­sel­ing Cen­ter of An­te­lope Val­ley.

All funds raised will help feed 10,000 peo­ple each month and pro­vide an ar­ray of home­less preven­tion ser­vices.

More spon­sors are wel­come to help sup­port the ef­forts of Grace Re­source Cen­ter to feed the hun­gry of the An­te­lope Val­ley, Baker said.

Spon­sor­ships range from $100 to $1,000.

Any­one who buys a spon­sor­ship of $1,000 or more will re­ceive 20 tick­ets. Tick­ets can also be do­nated back to Grace Re­source Cen­ter for client fam­i­lies to at­tend the game.

The gen­eral pub­lic is wel­come to par­tic­i­pate, and enjoy the chil­dren, base­ball, Santa, toys and Christ­mas mu­sic.

For many, it is their first ever ex­pe­ri­ence with pro­fes­sional base­ball, not to men­tion the visit by Santa. All do­na­tions are tax de­ductible.

For spon­sor­ship or ticket in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the Grace Re­source Cen­ter at 661-940-5272. For de­tails, visit www.GraceRe­sources.org, or https:// www.face­book.com/grac­ere­source­sav/.
