Salvation Army day at the Nats

The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command held its third annual Salvation Army Day at the Nats on August 8th. The Washington Nationals played their division rival Atlanta Braves in a game that began at 1:05 p.m. Around 250 Salvation Army band members, staff, donors, volunteers, and friends will attend. A 12-piece group from the National Capital Band of The Salvation Army will treat Nationals fans to a pre-game concert beginning around 11:30 a.m. at Center Field plaza entrance. They will also perform the National Anthem.

The Salvation Army is hosting a pre-game summer picnic that will include the Area Commander, Major James Hall, members of the staff, volunteers, donors, and event sponsors – Brown Prosthodontics, CBRE, Grassroot Communication, Kevin Surratt, Speak for a Cause LLC, and Steve Bull and Sherry Turner.

Following the picnic, the National Capital Area Commander Major James Hall and the chair of the NCAC Advisory Board Sherry Turner will be on the field to accept the Washington Nationals Spirit Award, an honor presented by the team to individuals and organizations that make a difference throughout the community.

Salvation Army guests will sit in three different sections throughout the stadium. Salvation Army friends will also have the honor of holding the finish line tape during the President’s Race in the middle of the fourth inning. Let’s root for a Nationals win!
