This was a really terrific event!
Our 6th Annual Ryan Martin Casino Night benefiting the Miracle League of Arizona was held on May 18th, 2019. The event honored the memory of the late Ryan Martin, a friend and advocate of the Miracle League of Arizona organization.
Guests tried their luck at Black Jack, Roulette, Let-It-Ride, and Craps, with the opportunity to “buy in” to donate and purchase more cards at any time during the evening. The event also featured a silent auction and raffle.
Ryan Clayton Martin was a vibrant young man who left us too early. Ryan grew up with his family just three blocks from the Miracle League Ballpark. His family included his mother and father Lori and Richard and his beloved brother Dustin who was two years older.
He had more friends than could ever be counted and attended school with them over the years, played sports, and was a member of the Desert Mountain High School Marching Band. He played club baseball and could often be found with his buddies shooting hoops at local parks. He loved being around people and most of all he loved making them laugh. He was compassionate, caring and generous. He was industrious and smart and worked his way through the University of Phoenix and graduated with a degree in Business Administration.
He often remarked how excited he was to see his old elementary school campus incorporate the new Miracle League Stadium for kids with special needs.
Ryan’s big and bright smile continues to shine on all of us and especially those who need a little extra help in life.
While he will be missed, he will always be remembered.
