There's only a half hour left to bid online for an artistic home plate (17 inches wide) in the "Home Plate Heroes" auction to benefit the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund. BUT! You can bid tonight in the live auction at Thea Center for the Arts, 401 Main St.! The auction runs 6 p.m.-8 p.m.
About the plate above:
Caroline Tyler and her beautiful 7-year-old daughter Brooklyn created this plate using crayons. They collaborated last year on a handprint plate, and we're hoping this will become as great a tradition for them as for the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund. Caroline was a Jim Elder Good Sport Fund winner a few years ago as a journalism student at UALR. She now works at Mangan Holcomb Partners.
The Good Sport Fund benefits organizations like Miracle League of Arkansas, Reviving Baseball in the Inner City at Lamar Field and other worthy organizations for kids.
