Anyone attending an Admirals game at Scope is likely to run into a yellow, furry mascot known as Hat Trick. For twelve years the Admirals Mascot has patrolled the arena high-fiving the fans, shooting t-shirts into the stands, and pumping up the crowd. The kids love him, heck even us older fans love him. Well now the man behind the mascot needs help from us.
Life is full of challenges. Some good, some bad. Art Sessoms recently found out that he has kidney disease and cancer. This is not the challenge we would want anyone to face. Unfortunately Art doesn’t have the choice other than to fight it. And fight it he will.
We have a chance to help the man who brought so many smiles to the children. We have the ability to help the man that pumped up the crowd. We have a chance to simply help another human being.
So what can we do? There are many ways. Keep Art in your thoughts and prayers. Well wishes are always appreciated. There is also a fundraiser to benefit Art being arranged.
The fundraiser is scheduled for Friday August 24 at Big Woody’s at Chesapeake Square. It will start at 6pm and run until 10pm. There will be live music, Cornhole, a silent auction, 50/50, Prizes & more!!. The event is still being worked out so there may be additional details. Please visit the link below for more updates.
Let’s keep Art in our thoughts while he fights this battle. We want Hat Trick off of the injured reserve and back in action in October.
Leave your well wishes and comments for Hat Trick on the Admirals Facebook page. The Admirals will ensure he see them.
