Sergio Romo, pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, the 2010 World Series champions, dedicated some time to meet the children of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas on Friday, Jan. 28. Twenty children got up close and personal with the major league big-timer and received personalized and autographed baseballs in the Lounge at the Palms.
Romo shared his stories of how he became the professional athlete he is today and the children expressed enthusiasm for the ball player. With the increasing popularity around Romo’s beard, the kids had a great time sporting their own fake beards and taking photos.
The group enjoyed ball park snacks including hot dogs by N9NE Steakhouse, popcorn by Brenden Theatres and orange-flavored cotton candy provided by Simon Restaurant & Bar. Also in attendance was N9NE Steakhouse Executive Chef Barry S. Dakake and Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas president and CEO Dulcinea Almazan and vice president Debbie Smith.
