Rays Up A Family

Rays Up A Family

 

It takes a village to raise a child – and thanks in part to Tampa Bay Rays’ Chris Archer  and Bay News 9’s Al Reuchel – our community was able to Rays Up a teenager and help him find his adoptive family.

 

The Heart Gallery of Pinellas & Pasco celebrated the adoption of Zachary on Monday, February 22 at 1:30 p.m. The ceremony took place at the Pinellas County Justice Center, where an intimate group gathered to celebrate the young man’s adoption by Mark and Terri Schreffler, a retired Air Force family from northern Florida.

 

Last June, 14 year-old Zachary was featured on Bay News 9 in a profile by senior news anchor Al Ruechel, in partnership with the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays are big supporters of the Heart Gallery of Pinellas & Pasco, and pitcher Chris Archer took a particular shine to the boy during his visit to Tropicana Field.
