The Congressional Baseball Game for Charity benefits the Washington Literacy Center
The Congressional Baseball Game is tonight, Wednesday, June 26, 2019.
We would like to thank the Congressional Sports for Charity, Members of Congress, and the many sponsors for their continued support of the WLC. Because of their generosity, we are able to further our mission of providing students with direct instruction in reading, math, and valuable skills so adult learners can obtain or improve employment and continue their education.
The support of the Congressional Sports for Charity has made a difference in the lives of our students, by providing much-needed educational enhancements and tools that would not otherwise be possible. We are grateful for a day of great fun that brings Democrats and Republicans together to compete for sport, and changing the lives of our students forever.
Since 1909, the Congressional Baseball Game has been an annual bipartisan event beloved by all and enjoyed by thousands. Members of the United States Congress from each party solidify friendships off the floor and on the field. Over the last century the Congressional Baseball Game’s popularity has contributed to its evolution into a foundation called Congressional Sports for Charity that supports worthy and effective Washington, DC area charities. These charities include The Washington Literacy Center, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, and the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation along with the United States Capitol Police Memorial Fund in gratitude to the brave officers at the Republican practice shooting on June 14, 2017.
