Ray's Summer Days

Football in the summer? Not exactly. "Ray's Summer Days," presented by Baltimore Ravens player Ray Lewis, is a three-day affair featuring an array of benefit sports events and other fundraising activities. The public is invited to head to the stands at Patterson Park on Saturday and watch Ray lead a Youth Fitness Clinic. Some 600 children were selected to partake in the exercise clinic, which will feature some of Ray's teammates, Redskins players and local celebrities. Other "Summer Days" activities include a VIP meet-and-greet, cocktail reception and auction, golfing match, celebrity bowling tournament and Pev's Celebrity Paintball Tournament. Events benefit the Ray Lewis Foundation, whose mission is to provide personal and economic assistance to disadvantaged youths.
