Colma, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2012
San Francisco’s new car sales dealer, Stewart Chevrolet Cadillac, the premier Cadillac Chevrolet dealer for more than 75 years, is announcing that it has partnered with the San Mateo American to provide new equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 through a Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes. The program kicks off March 1 and runs through July 15.
“Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families,” Scott Wright, managing partner for Stewart Chevrolet Cadillac, said. “There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball, and Stewart Chevrolet Cadillac wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in San Mateo to enjoy.”
The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is beginning its seventh year. It has helped raise more than $13 million for local teams and affected more than 2.7 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play.
This year, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are participating. Stewart Chevrolet Cadillac will present San Mateo American with 10 new equipment kits, complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets, whiffle balls, hitting nets, batting tees and Chevrolet youth baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Stewart Chevrolet Cadillac will present a check, representing a one-time monetary donation to San Mateo American. The teams will also have an opportunity to raise additional funds through a Chevrolet Youth Baseball Fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation. Each league will keep 100 percent of the proceeds it raises. At the end of the fundraiser, five winners--one from each region--will win the Chevrolet Equinox or Chevrolet Cruze vehicle of their choice. Each participating market will award a secondary prize of a TV and Blu-ray player.
As part of Chevrolet’s continued support of communities and youth baseball, Chevrolet is also bringing back “Diamonds and Dreams” for its third year.
Participants can enter to win a baseball field makeover for their community. Chevrolet will award 12 weekly field makeover prizes and the opportunity to win a grand prize of an all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. The sweepstakes will begin in mid-April.
