We are excited to make such a substantial donation to Murphey Candler Little League and enjoyed partnering with them this season
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Jim Ellis Chevrolet is one of 40 Chevrolet dealers from the Atlanta area that partnered with local youth baseball leagues and helped raise close to $120,540 in total donations. During the 2009 baseball season, Murphey Candler Little League received both monetary and equipment donations as well as the opportunity to raise up to $10,000 through a unique fundraiser.
Jim Ellis Chevrolet partnered with the Murphey Candler Little League because of the league's proximity to the dealership and existing relationships with parents in the area. Over the course of the season, Jim Ellis Chevrolet donated team equipment kits, which included equipment bags, ball buckets, coach's clipboards and t-shirts and made a cash donation to Murphey Candler Little League.
Another exciting component of Chevy Youth Baseball was the youth baseball clinics led by Ripken Baseball with the Braves at Turner Field which provided the youth with personalized instruction from the pros. Thanks to Jim Ellis Chevrolet and the other participating Chevrolet dealers in the Atlanta area, youth league members had the opportunity to attend this baseball clinic with professional instructors.
"We are excited to make such a substantial donation to Murphey Candler Little League and enjoyed partnering with them this season," said Mark Frost, General Manager of Jim Ellis Chevrolet. "Sponsoring Murphey Candler Little League gave us the opportunity to illustrate our commitment to the youth and families in our community and we're glad to have achieved such positive outcomes for the area."
To date, more than 400 Chevrolet dealers in the Southeast have sponsored youth leagues in their communities and helped raise $3.6 million for youth baseball programs.
