Friday afternoon, July 29, 2011, 3-5 p.m., near Celebration! Cinema upstairs at Rivertown Crossings Mall in Grandville, Michigan, look for the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan table.

During the fun premiere party for the new movie “The Smurfs,” we’ll be selling tickets for the Adoption Day home game of the Detroit Tigers A baseball affiliate West Michigan Whitecaps, 1 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 21. Kids ages 2 and under get into the ballpark for free. Buy a $9.50 reserved seat ball game ticket from Lutheran Social Services and the Whitecaps will donate $2.50 to our foster care program! Stop by and get your tickets from us for a great Sunday afternoon of baseball at the Fifth Third ballpark. We’ll also be giving away temporary tattoos for the kids at our table! And there will be information about becoming a Lutheran Social Services foster parent for a child in need of a safe, caring home.

By the way, Sundays are Family Days at Fifth Third Ballpark. The first 1,000 children through the gate eat free! There are pre-game autographs, you can play catch on the field, and take a post-game run around the bases. Pre-game activities start at 12:15 p.m. Game time is 1 p.m.

Meanwhile, Lutheran Social Services has purchased 100 tickets to the Adoption Day baseball game and will have a drawing to treat foster families and members of their households to a fun afternoon at the ball park on Sunday, Aug. 21. If you qualify as a LSSM foster family and want to get into the drawing for game tickets, please contact Kate Wert at 616-356-1934, ext. 22, or by email at
