WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (June 2, 2017) - The Winston-Salem Dash and Energize Ministries are proud to announce that proceeds from their "Energize the Ballpark" concert with Sidewalk Prophets at BB&T Ballpark on Saturday, June 3, presented by Eanes Heating and Air Conditioning, will benefit the YMCA Camp Hanes to provide recovery from the tornado that came through the Triad area last week.
YMCA Camp Hanes in Stokes County sustained significant damage on Wednesday, May 24, when a tornado hit the area. Every single facility and program area was impacted, with varying amounts of damage.

However, since the storm came through, the summer camp has been hard at work trying to ensure it stays on schedule to open on June 11. Tree removal companies have been clearing trees, and insurance adjusters are on site, according to the Camp Hanes website. Also, water removal has occurred in multiple buildings.  
"These community concerts are an annual part of our ministry, and even though we don't plan it like this, the last couple of years, we have seen some unique needs pop up right before these events," said Andy Bowersox, the Executive Director of Energize Ministries. "It has been our privilege to help connect and share the generosity of our audience with some of our community ministry partners. We love the influence of Camp Hanes and look forward to helping them rebuild after this storm."
The first community clean up day is on Saturday, June 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., as interested individuals can assist with the restoring of Camp Hanes. The next will be on Tuesday, June 6, also from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Food and water will be provided for all the helpers, and children under twelve must be supervised by an adult.
Sidewalk Prophets, formed by lead singer Dave Frey and rhythm guitarist Ben McDonald, will be making their first-ever appearance at BB&T Ballpark. The group took home the GMA Dove Award for Best New Artist in 2010 and has had multiple songs crack the Top 20 Billboard Christian Singles chart.
Tickets to enjoy the concert are available in advance for $10 per person and can be purchased by contacting the Dash at (336) 714-6873 or [email protected]. Tickets will be good for both the game and the concert.
