Bright Futures Atlanta is proud to announce that Founder and Executive Director Philip Ross will be honored by the Atlanta Braves during the Opening Day game on April 4, 2016 as a part of a new program called Braves Country Community Hero presented by Chick-fil-A.

During the April 4 game against the Washington Nationals, Ross will be invited onto the field, and a video highlighting his work with Bright Futures Atlanta will be shown on the BravesVision video screen. The on-field presentation is set to take place after the 3rd inning. Ross will also be featured in the corresponding homestand’s Play Bill, and in a blog post on the Braves Give blog.

“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by the Atlanta Braves for what we’ve accomplished with Bright Futures Atlanta,” said Ross. “Our organization works hard to help young people in Atlanta achieve their potential, and to instill teamwork and discipline in them. Those are qualities that sports like baseball can teach, and this experience will give us the opportunity to showcase the mission of Bright Futures Atlanta to a wider audience.”
