Participants and Partners – 7th

“Home Runs That Help” is the community outreach initiative of the POWER SHOWCASE All-World/All-American Baseball Classic. “Home Runs that Help” campaign has two components.  Each POWER SHOWCASE participant’s responsibility is to reach out to their community and contact their local Children’s Hospital. They will partner with a local baseball fan that is suffering from a life-threatening medical condition, disability or special need and can even raise financial contributions for their cause.  It is here where a visit is facilitated and a life-long relationship is forged, and cultivated.All of the home runs hit by the participant are dedicated to that special individual. The first home run ball hit by the POWER SHOWCASE participant is signed, labeled with the distance the ball actually traveled and later presented to the partner. A meeting is scheduled and both are photographed prior to the POWER SHOWCASE event. The photo will then be shown on the Jumbo-tron at Marlins Park when the participant is being announced and walking up to the plate before he hits. In addition, the announcer mentions the partners name as well as some prominent information. The event will be broadcast and streamed live world-wide on the POWER SHOWCASE Internet channel.

Just wanted to share with you something amazing that has come out of your Home Runs the Help program. Last week Peter presented Macey with $6000.00 raised through donations.  This paid for her service dog’s training in full.  Without your program this would not have happened.  Thank you, not only for a great event, but for sharing in your desire to help the community. Jextin’s benefit was awesome tonight! We raised close to $4000.00 for the families! The weather got a little tricky with some rain at first but it cleared out just when the event started. It was cold though! The bands were great, food  was awesome, and the people had fun! We had a lot of shirt and cause bracelets left over we are going to sell them at the baseball building.We are also going to do some orders for people who couldn’t make it. They could actually make a couple more thousand in t-shirt sales. That’s how many shirts were donated. I actually got so involved with these two families that we are going to continue to help them. Jextin was invited to the Type 1 diabetes walk in May and they want him to cut the ribbon to start the walk this year. We are also going to help Dec. 1 with a bizarre they are having at the Altoona Curve Stadium in our area.I am so glad you have this program it was a great learning  experience for Jextin!  He said he would do again in a heartbeat!!
