The Rams return to the Edward Jones Dome a week from tomorrow, and the Boys and Girls Club of Alton is hoping to take as many of its members as possible to the game. Following last night's game in Cleveland, the Rams pre-season home opener is August 17 against the Green Bay Packers. The club traditionally bring a bus-load of kids to the first pre-season game of the year.
It's made possible by the donations of Rams season ticket holders, who were first approached about donating their passes in 2006, according to Boys and Girls Club board member Sarah Woodman.
The donations can also come in the form of money, if you are not a season-ticket holder but would still like to see the kids have a good time., The monetary donations will be used to provide the kids with a little "pocket money" to buy a snack or maybe a souvenier. To donate or learn more about the "Give it up for the Kids" drive, call 462-6249.
