Note: The Orioles are sending their limo to pick up Casey Cares child Kevin B., his family and friend at home and whisk them away to Camden Yards for the VIP treatment, a tour of the stadium, batting practice and special tickets to the game.

Celebrating his ninth birthday and first day of fourth grade, Kevin, who suffers with LCH, a rare blood disease, is getting a day out and away from his treatment at Sinai Children’s Hospital. This event is part of the Family Festivities Program of the Casey Cares Foundation, a charity that provides uplifting and ongoing programs with a special touch for critically ill children and their families.

Kevin and his family have been with Casey Cares since 2011 and have enjoyed more than 15 activities including sporting events, Orioles Fan Fest, Monster Jam, meeting the Harlem Globe Trotters, and much more.

“This is such an awesome afternoon for Kevin and his family to get away from their stressful routine,” stated Casey Baynes, Founder of Casey Cares. “We are so grateful to the Orioles for making memories like this happen for Casey Cares children. They are a great team on and off the field.”
