Jacob’s Village Game Set For May 5 Against Florence

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The Evansville Otters and Jacob’s Village are partnering up for the 12th time by hosting an exhibition game on May 5 at 6:35 p.m. to benefit Jacob’s Village.

As a part of the benefit, the Otters will host a “Diamond Dash” sponsored by Tracy Zeller Jewelry in honor of Mother’s Day. The dash will give every woman over the age of 18 a chance to go onto the field following the seventh inning to dash for a $1,000 Tracy Zeller Jewelry shopping spree.

The game will also include free popcorn (while supplies last), door prizes, clowns and more.

Tickets for this year’s game may be purchased at all G.D. Ritzy’s locations, Bosse Field and Jacob’s Village beginning Friday.

The mission of Jacob’s Village is to develop a safe, walk-able neighborhood community where people with disabilities and older adults can find meaningful relationships, housing that is affordable and accessible, and activities that encourage active minds and bodies.
