OUR MISSION

The mission of Double Angel Foundation is three-fold –all in the name of Dillon and Logan Dixey, two young Parker boys who lived and breathed the game of baseball before tragically drowning in 2000 while swimming at the rear of a houseboat on Lake Powell. First, is the intention to develop special needs programs and scholarship opportunities so that baseball can be accessible to all children. Second, is the goal of improving public awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. Third, is the construction and maintenance of a baseball complex in Parker, Colorado, so that youth can enjoy the game, share team spirit and experience the sense of accomplishment.
