SCI to host first ever Building Brains Ballpark Bash

Studer Community Institute will host the first ever Building Brains Ballpark Bash on Sunday, March 24 at Blue Wahoos Stadium from 2:00-5:00pm. The family-fun carnival type event is designed to raise awareness and funds for SCI’s Building Brains Program.


SCI’s Building Brains program is designed to inform, equip, and support parents on the pivotal importance of early brain development. The goal is to give every child the opportunity to be the best they can be and move the needle on kindergarten readiness.

The Ballpark Bash is an adventure-packed event featuring over 10 thrilling inflatables, from bounce houses to exciting sports challenges and fun obstacle courses. Carnival games will also be available and various vendors will be on site to provide other activities, including face painting and balloon sculpting. Other highlights include baby crawl races and kids running around the bases competitions with prizes in different divisions. Wahoos mascot Kazoo will also be on hand to entertain attendees.

While the kids play, parents can enjoy perusing informative stands while gathering valuable insights and resources. As well as information on SCI’s Building Brains Program, many other Pensacola area non-profits will be manning booths to share their missions and services.

PNC Bank is the event’s Presenting Sponsor and many other businesses and organizations have stepped up to support the cause including Champion Level Sponsors Baptist Health Care, FPL, HCA Florida West, Cox Communications, Bear General Contractors, Morette Company, and Torgeson Causey.

Ticket entrance fee is $5 per person which includes access and a 10-activity punch card. Additional punch cards may be purchased inside event. You can buy tickets at the event or in advance here 

SCI is hoping the event will build on the momentum of recent news about the rise of     Kindergarten Readiness scores in Escambia County, a key metric to measure success for the Building Brains program.

SCI’s Building Brains Program initiatives include:

Partnering with every Pensacola area hospital to show all new parents the Build A Brain video, and provide them with a resource filled Brain Bag

-Facilitating usage of the game-changing Basics Insights text messaging service

-Running the Sibling Brain Builders program in conjunction with Escambia Co. Public Schools

Don’t miss a great time for a great cause!
