Batter Up! InterContinental San Diego Hosts Home Runs For Homelessness

The InterContinental Hotel San Diego, in partnership with The San Diego Harbor Police Foundation, is hosting Home Runs for Homelessness on Saturday, October 22 to raise funds that will benefit the underserved community of Barrio Logan’s Perkins K-8 School.

Having hosted Home Runs for Homelessness once before in 2019, The InterContinental is excited to revive this community-oriented giveback event on site at the historic Lane Field Park, the former Lane Field Stadium where the San Diego Padres’ played from 1936-1957, and where famed Ted Williams spent his first two years in baseball after finishing his Senior year from San Diego’s Herbert Hoover High School .

A fun, family-friendly event, participants will have the opportunity to request their “at-bat” song, step up to the plate and wind up for a wiffle ball pitch. The farther the ball goes, the greater the sum of money will be donated on each guests’ behalf.

With an affordable entry fee of $5, ticket-holders have the chance to swing 5 times, with the option to pay an additional $15 for kids and $20 for adults for a ballpark-style lunch, which includes a Hot Dog or Cheeseburger, Chips, a soda and cookies or brownies.

In addition to the home run contest, guests will also have the opportunity to partake in a silent auction highlighting prizes and experiences from local attractions and businesses, and enjoy fun kid-friendly activations including a bounce house and other exciting games. The Pad Squad and the Swinging Friar will also be there to cheer on participants, take pictures and more.

Tickets can be purchased in advance via Eventbrite or at the event on October 22, with all of the proceeds going directly to Perkins K-8 school, whose student body has a poverty rate of 95%, a large population of which have experienced traumatic, adverse childhood experiences that affect their ability to learn in a normal classroom environment.

Donations from Home Runs for Homelessness will help contribute to the cost of school supplies and equipment for specialized learning tactics, including their Action Learning Lab, a method that requires expensive lab equipment to help students deal with inattentiveness and jitters.

See you there, San Diego!
