Join Us for the Fifth Annual Soirée for Play—the only gala in town where you can wear sneakers! The soirée is a casual cocktail and hors d'oeuvre recess and fundraiser for Playworks Minnesota designed to move you and your guests off the sidelines and into the game.
On Friday, May 20th, the Minnesota Twins joined Playworks at Whittier Elementary School for recess and some wiffle ball fun! As part of the Minnesota Twins and Major League Baseball's Play Ball initiative, shortstop Jorge Polanco and pitcher Michael Tonkin played a game of wiffle ball with 5th and 3rd grade students out at recess.
