There's a good chance the downtrodden Seattle Mariners will get shut out or score, maybe, one run. But what the heck.
The Edmonds Sister City Commission is inviting you to enjoy Edmonds Night Out at the Mariners while supporting the scholarship fund of the Sister City Commission.
Edmonds' Sister City is Hekinan, Japan. Every summer, the Sister City Commission, an all-volunteer citizen effort, sends students from Edmonds to Hekinan and hosts visiting Hekinan students to learn about Edmonds and the United States while sharing in this cultural exchange.
“This program is one of mutual learning, enjoyment and rich cultural experience,” says Yoshitaka Inoue, the commission's chair. “Next year is the 25th anniversary of the Sister City relationship, and we would like to be able to build our scholarship fund to send students who cannot afford to go because of the cost.”
This year, for the first time, the Sister City Commission invites the entire community to join the students at a Mariners game while benefiting the scholarship fund at the same time.
The game is Aug. 14 at 7:10 p.m. when the Mariners take on the Tampa Bay Rays. Tickets are $20. For every ticket sold, the Sister City Commission will receive $9 for the scholarship fund.

Groups of 25 or more will have their group name displayed on the scoreboard following the fourth inning.
