Dodgers Host Virtual Birthday Celebration For Children Experiencing Homelessness



The Los Angeles Dodgers hosted the third annual birthday party for youth last night at the Union Rescue Mission. The event was also held at Hope Gardens in Sylmar as the organization worked with Worth of Love, a non-profit that works to provide birthday parties for children experiencing homelessness. 

This year, the event was held virtually as the coronavirus limits in-person activity. Dodgers players Tony Gonsolin and Josiah Gray joined in on the virtual games and sang Happy Birthday to the kids. The celebration included visits from mascots and over 400 meals provided by the team in partnership with California Pizza Kitchen.

More from Dodgers Vice President of External Affairs and Community Relations Naomi Rodriguez:

Every kid deserves to have a special birthday celebration and seeing the unbridled joy on the faces of these kids makes this party a highlight each year. The work of Worthy of Love is so important because every kid and every birthday is worth celebrating, especially during these challenging times, and we thank our partner California Pizza Kitchen for helping to make this such a memorable and festive occasion.

This is the third year that the Dodgers have partnered with Worth of Love as they continue to be a pillar in the community of Los Angeles. Pictures for the event can be found on the team’s Instagram page, also feature below.
