Residents enjoyed a Blue Jays Day as a Make A Wish project.

Let’s go Blue Jays, let’s go!!! This was the chant coming from our living room on August 24th, while the residents cheered on the Toronto Blue Jays. Our living room was transformed into a baseball stadium, specifically the Rogers Centre. When residents arrived, they all posed for their picture in an All-Star photo frame and got a Blue Jays tattoo, if they wished. They then found their seats and waited for the Blue Jays to take on the Tampa Bay Rays. Family and friends joined the residents to enjoy the game, as well as some pop and cheesies. This event was done especially for two of our residents, Rod and Bill, as a Make A Wish project. They are both huge Toronto Blue Jays fans and we wanted to help bring the game to them. The Blue Jays were contacted and sent a letter to both guys, thanking them for being such dedicated fans and their continued support. Rod and Bill were also presented with some Blue Jays memorabilia, including a keychain, baseball and player plaque with some dirt from the Rogers Centre field. Although the Blue Jays did not pull off a win, everyone had a great time.
