Stingers and the Dan Baker Foundation Announce Law Enforcement Appreciation Night


Willmar, MN – The Willmar Stingers and the Dan Baker Foundation have announced a partnership for a Law Enforcement Appreciation event at the ballpark. On Sunday, June 17 the Stingers host the Mankato MoonDogs for a night dedicated to the men and women who serve the residents of Willmar and Kandiyohi County. The night will not only recognize these individuals and their families for their commitment and time served in their communities, it will double as an event to promote awareness of addiction and provide support for those who need and are seeking treatment.

Law Enforcement Departments in Willmar and Kandiyohi County will receive complimentary tickets as well as a pre-game picnic at Bill Taunton Stadium courtesy of Dave & Mary Baker and the Dan Baker Foundation. A pre-game ceremony will take place honoring individuals within the law enforcement community and booths will be set up on the concourse area promoting addiction awareness and support.

The mission of the Dan Baker Foundation is to provide strength and support to persons, families and organizations fighting addiction. As communities in and around West Central Minnesota see an epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths, the Dan Baker Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives for individuals and families that have been affected as well as provide support for all law enforcement agencies.  

“The Dan Baker Foundation is grateful to partner with the Stingers again and recognize the men and women who serve our communities,” said Al Baker the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Dan Baker Foundation. “The Stingers and Bill Taunton Stadium provide a fantastic venue to share our mission of addiction awareness while giving back to our community,” added Baker.
