The public is invited to come out for some friendly competition in the 12th Annual John Kane Penny Pitch, a fundraiser that will benefit Community Beyond Violence this year. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 29 at Kane’s Restaurant, 120 E. Main Street in downtown Grass Valley.

The Penny Pitch will feature music by DJ Jamal of My Way Productions and drawings for raffle prizes throughout the day. Kane’s Restaurant will offer a special menu and reduced drink prices just for this event. Cost is $20 per person and $120 for a team of six (individuals who want to participate but don’t have a team will be matched with other individuals to create teams of six.)
