On Thursday, October 27, the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and Weller Development Partners hosted Oysters and Crabs with Cal at Nick’s Fish House in Baltimore, MD. The evening included a buffet, crabs and oysters, live music, desserts, a whiskey tasting, and Q&A with Cal Ripken, Jr. and Marc Weller. A percentage of the proceeds will fund the installation of a new Ripken Foundation STEM Center at Arundel Elementary in South Baltimore.
The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps to strengthen America’s most underserved and distressed communities by supporting and advocating for children, building Youth Development Parks, partnering with law enforcement and youth service agencies, and addressing community needs through its national program initiatives. Founded in 2001, the Foundation is led by former Major League Baseball players, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Bill Ripken, and was named in memory of their father, Cal, Sr. The life lessons of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic are keys to success for all young people, especially those living in disadvantaged circumstances.
