Mayor Lovely Warren, Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, and other local elected officials, along with the Boys Scouts of America, and a broad cross-section of the Rochester business, legal and faith communities, held the second annual “Field of Dreams Urban Camp-Out” project, in which approximately 75 Boys from School No. 17 participated in an overnight camp-out hosted by the Rochester Red Wings at Frontier Field on Aug. 12.
The two principal goals of the event were as follows:
- Bridging the gap between law enforcement and city youth, to reduce violence and improve community relations; and,
- Reducing racial and ethnic conflicts among young people.
