Since 1909, the Congressional Baseball Game has been the only annual partisan showdown beloved by all and enjoyed by thousands. Over the years the Congressional Baseball Game's popularity has contributed to its evolution into a fundraiser for three worthy and effective DC area charities, The Washington Literacy Center, The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, and The Nationals Dream Foundation.
The Washington Literacy Center (WLC), founded in 1963, is one of the oldest adult literacy programs in the District. The WLC provides a re-entry point into education for adults who have the most limited reading skills, fewest job resources and greatest employment needs in the District of Columbia.http://washingtonliteracycenter.org/
Since 1886, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington (BGCGW) has been providing positive options for our region's children. BGCGW operates 18 Clubs, one outreach center, and three satellite sites in DC, Maryland and Virginia and a summer camp serving nearly 21,000 area youth annually.
BGCGW Clubs offer programs in the following core areas: Education & Career Development; Character & Leadership Development; Health & Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.http://www.bgcgw.org/
The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation is committed to programs and community partnerships that improve the lives of children and families in the Washington Capital Region.http://washington.nationals.mlb.com/was/community/foundation/
