RaeLynn, Jimmy Robbins To Perform At Orioles’ “Athletes & Artists Play For Kids” Event


RaeLynn, Jordan Schmidt, Jimmy Robbins, Carter Faith and special guest emcee Renee Blair will take part in the upcoming fifth annual “Athletes & Artists Play for Kids” charity weekend hosted by the Baltimore Orioles. The weekend, which will take place at Ed Smith Stadium from March 5-8, 2020, celebrates current country hits and combines song and sport to support arts education and girls’ empowerment. The event will feature the fifth annual “Nashville’s Music Row Comes to the Ballpark” VIP charity event, two Orioles home games, and free community workshops for local youth.

A portion of proceeds from the weekend’s events will benefit the Orioles Charitable Foundation’s Music & Arts Education Scholarship, which was created in 2019 to support deserving students and programs in Baltimore, Sarasota, and Nashville. To date, the “Athletes and Artists” series has raised over $400,000.

“We are thrilled to once again use our platform to bring song and sport together in support of arts education and girls’ empowerment,” said Jennifer Grondahl, Orioles Senior Vice President, Community Development and Communications. “The ‘Athletes & Artists’ series has become an integral part of our community development efforts, and acts as a catalyst for change in the Baltimore, Sarasota, and Nashville communities.”

This year’s weekend-long series of events will begin Thursday, March 5, when the Orioles host the Minnesota Twins. On Saturday, March 7, the Orioles will once again offer free community workshops for local youth at Ed Smith Stadium, hosted by participating musicians and baseball alumni who donate their time and talent to ensure that gifted kids in disadvantaged communities have access to arts and music education.
