Elks Lodge takes Special Olympians to Mariners game
The Lake Sammamish Elks Lodge in Issaquah took 60 Special Olympics youths and their caregivers to a Seattle Mariners baseball game Sept. 23 thanks to a $2,000 grant from the Elks National Foundation.
The money also paid for transportation and refreshment costs.
The Mariners acknowledged the Special Olympians in attendance at the end of the fourth inning on the large scoreboard. The youths are members of the Issaquah Special Olympics baseball team.
