About Hot Stove

Hot Stove is Flying Squirrels Charities' largest annual fundraising event. This year, for the first time ever, we are moving to Altria Theater on November 10th! The night consists of VIP areas, Ballroom access, drinks, hors d'oeuvres, a DJ, autograph session, silent auction, a 360° photobooth, and ends with a 90-minute program on the main stage! Our goal is to connect past and present Squirrels players/managers with the Richmond community and grow our relationship with the San Francisco Giants while raising money for F.S. Charities. The funds we raise during this event will go to scholarships, donations, and other needs that arise in the Richmond community. In the past, we've used the money to rebuild baseball fields and dugouts, start the All-Star Legacy Scholarship, donate to multiple food banks, and more!

During his career, he was named an All-Star eight times, won eight Gold Glove Awards, was the National League Rookie of the Year in 1977 and was named the National League MVP in 1987. He was inducted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010.

 In January of 2022, Flying Squirrels Charities rebranded in order to focus on the current needs of the community and surrounding areas. Now, our mission is to impact RVA by enhancing educational opportunities, providing athletic programming and bringing the FUNN into all we do! Flying Squirrels Charities strives to strike out the social determinants that negatively influence our community while also fostering a place for inclusion.


Four Pillars of Focus

Ways We've Helped the Community in the Past


All-Star Legacy Fund: Every year since 2019, Flying Squirrels Charities has partnered with Genworth to give away a 1-3 scholarships a year to students in the Richmond Public Schools system to help continue their education through a 4-year college of their choice.

Richmond 34 Scholarship: Since 2022, Flying Squirrels Charities has awarded a one-time $5,000 scholarship to a student in the Greater Richmond Region attending either Virginia Union University or Virginia State University. 

Renovating Richmond's Recreation: Flying Squirrels Charities was created in 2014 to improve 16 youth baseball fields in the surrounding areas with the help of the Richmond City Parks and Recreation Department. Some of those field projects include Bellemeade Field, Blackwell Field, Fairfield Field, Henderson Complex, Hotchkiss Field, Martin Luther King Jr. Fields, Powhatan Community Center, Summer Hill Playground and Westover Community Center.

Donations: Flying Squirrels Charities has raised money for other non-profit partners, including The Holli Fund, Community Foundation, The Robins Foundation in collaboration with RVA Strong, Richmond Education Foundation, Nourish Henrico, Chesterfield Food Bank, VCU Health Rainbow Fund and various Little League Associations around the metro Richmond area.
