Chevy and youth football. It's a great combination
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
Jim Ellis Chevrolet of Atlanta is partnering with Atlanta Colts Youth Association to provide the league's players and coaches with equipment, a monetary donation, and a chance to fund-raise up to $10,000.
In support of Atlanta-area youth, Jim Ellis Chevrolet will provide Atlanta Colts Youth Association with football and cheerleading kits filled with equipment bags, water coolers and water bottles, coaches' clipboards, visors and t-shirts. Also, thanks to the dealership and other participating area Chevrolet dealers, league members will have a chance to attend a Chevy Youth Football Instructional Clinic taught by experienced players and instructors.
Offering additional support to the community, the Atlanta Colts Youth Association will have the opportunity to raise as much as $10,000 through a fundraising opportunity where a new Chevy Equinox will be given away. Jim Ellis Chevrolet and other Atlanta-area Chevrolet dealerships are donating the Equinox to the participating leagues. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the participating leagues, and they can use the funds in any way they choose. Some of the leagues have reported they plan to grant scholarships to families who cannot afford to enroll their children in the league, while others have said they will use the funds to improve fields and equipment.
"Chevy and youth football. It's a great combination," says General Manager Mark Frost of Jim Ellis Chevrolet. "We are proud to be able to help the kids in our community by donating equipment and giving them the opportunity to raise much needed funds for their league. We are excited to be part of the effort this year, and anticipate a fun-filled season of Atlanta Colts Youth Association football."
2009 is the first year for the Chevy Youth Football program, which is modeled after the highly successful Chevy Youth Baseball program which has been carried out in communities across the Southeast for the last three years.
