“We’re going to be like paparazzi, so that they really feel special coming in. It’s their movie premier, it’s their night, it’s all about the Miracle League kids.” said General Amherst student council president, Katie DeLuca.

Also. on May 13, student council will be having a students vs. teachers baseball game buy out for the students at General Amherst. Tickets will cost $3, and the game will begin around 12:30 pm and wrap up by 2:15 pm at General Amherst‘s own baseball diamond. Student council welcomes anyone from the community who would like to watch the game to show up.

“It really brings the community together … We find it (the Miracle League) is a really good cause and it’s the first one in Canada, and it’s in our home town so we really want to support it and get it out there. All the kids are really sweet so we want to help them.” said DeLuca
