Good Samaritan Hospital, Baltimore Ravens and KaBOOM! Host Design Day for New Playground

WHAT:
CB Domonique Foxworth from the Baltimore Ravens, Good Samaritan Hospital and organizers from KaBOOM! will host a design day for children at the hospital's Child Development Center at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8. Children from the Center will put crayon to paper and draw their dream playgrounds, which will ultimately become a reality. Elements from the children's drawings will be incorporated into the final design for the new community playground to be built by Ravens players/staff and community volunteers in early June at the Center. The design day will also be the first meeting of the playground planning committee that will work for the next eight weeks to prepare for the construction of the new playground.
