TICONDEROGA-In the spirit of community collaboration and teamwork taught through youth sports, Christopher Chevrolet is supporting Ticonderoga Little League through the Chevy Youth Baseball Program. This sponsorship will include both monetary and equipment donations during the 2011 youth baseball season.
Now in its fifth year, Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Christopher Chevrolet is sponsoring Ticonderoga Little League as a part of Chevrolet's nation-wide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time. Over the course of the season, Christopher Chevrolet will donate equipment to the league which includes: equipment bags, baseballs, softballs, catcher's gear, batting helmets, ball buckets, umpire's equipment, coach's kits and first aid kits.
Each sponsored league can take part in the "Chevy Youth Baseball Double Play Giveaway," which is a fundraiser that can earn each league up to $10,000. The "Chevy Youth Baseball Double Play Giveaway" features a Grand Prize of a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, in addition to other prizes such as HD televisions, courtesy of the local Chevrolet dealership.
Also, thanks to Christopher Chevrolet and other participating area Chevrolet dealers, league participants will have a chance to attend a youth baseball instructional clinic with a professional baseball team in the area.
"We are looking forward to a great season with Ticonderoga Little League that will be filled with exciting games and an enhanced experience for the teams through the equipment and cash donations," Joe Orta of Christopher Chevrolet said. "Chevy Youth Baseball is just one example of how committed our dealership is to supporting the youth and families in the Ticonderoga community."
The 2011 program will provide assistance to 346 leagues in the Northeastern region and Chevrolet dealers will contribute over $600,000 in monetary and equipment donations.
