Home Runs for Heroes Swings Back in ActionApril 15, 2017
We’re pleased to announce the ninth season of Home Runs for Heroes, our partnership with the Lakewood BlueClaws, a minor league team of the Philadelphia Phillies, and Townsquare Media. Over eight seasons, we’ve scored big for charities that help veterans and LOCAL service men and women with more than $200,000 in grants awarded.
Home Runs for Heroes provides financial support to nonprofit organizations that meet the emergency and basic needs of veterans and LOCAL service men and women – active and retired – and their families during difficult times. The program ties each charity partner to an inning and every home run hit by the BlueClaws at First Energy Park during the charity’s designated inning earns them a $1,000 donation. They awesome exposure on Townsquare Media stations.
This year’s charity partners include: American Recreational Military Services (A.R.M.S.); American Red Cross; Army Emergency Relief; Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton (Emergency Services); Citizens Veterans Advisory Committee; Chariot Riders (Horses for Heroes); GI Go Fund; Jewish Federation (Take the Wheel); Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski, II Memorial Fund; Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society/Lakehurst; New Jersey National Guard State Family Readiness Council; Operation First Response and VetGroup.
The application for inclusion in the 2017 program is now closed.
