The Miracle League of DFW to receive special honor

Last year, the Regional Acceptance team organized a Lighthouse Project for the Miracle League at Cowboys Stadium.

BB&T will receive the award during ceremonies at the Doug Inman Miracle League Field on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 10:30 a.m. CT.

BB&T’s Miracle League Lighthouse Project, held in September 2010, had an exceptionally high number of Regional Acceptance Corp. volunteers participating and was voted one of the top five Lighthouse Projects by BB&T employees.
