Children ages 16 and under can design a Rawhide jersey that will be worn by players and auctioned off to raise money for Valley Children's Healthcare.

VISALIA, CA - The Rawhide announced Friday that it will hold its first ever Design-a Jersey Contest for children ages 16 and under. The winner will have their jersey worn by Rawhide players on Sunday August 4th. During the game, jerseys will be auctioned and all proceeds will go to Valley Children's Healthcare.

Contestants will design their jerseys on templates provided at www.RawhideBaseball.com, and submit their designs by March 1st. The winner will be selected, and announced on March 8th.

Valley Children's Healthcare will receive all proceeds from the jersey auction. Valley Children Healthcare has been recognized two years in a row by U.S. News and World Report as one of the "Best Children's Hospitals", and is planning to build a Visalia hospital location in the near future.
