Help the B&O; Museum 'Raise the Roof'
The February snowstorm was devastating to the B&O; Railroad Museum. Under the heavy weight of the snow, the roundhouse roof caved in on Feb. 17, causing millions of dollars in damage.
In an effort to raise money for the repairs, the museum is teaming up with the Baltimore Orioles for a fund-raising event, "Raise the Roof," at Oriole Park at Camden Yards Wednesday.
Baseball fans can attend a pre-game bullpen party and then watch the O's take on the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The bullpen party kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and features a bourbon barbecue beef brisket sandwich, hot dog, pasta salad, popcorn, watermelon, ice cream, soft drinks and draft beer. The Orioles Bird makes a visit to the party, as well. The ballgame begins at 7:05 p.m.
A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to the B&O; Railroad Museum Roundhouse Restoration Fund.
The "Raise the Roof" event takes place Wednesday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Pratt and Eutaw streets. Pre-game bullpen party begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Bullpen Picnic Grove and runs until game time at 7:05 p.m. $45 for bullpen party ticket and game ticket. $15 for game ticket only. Call 410-752-2462, Ext. 220 to purchase tickets.
