OceanFirst Foundation is proud to team up with the Lakewood BlueClaws, a minor league team of the Philadelphia Phillies organization and Townsquare Media – 92.7 WOBM and Beach Radio 1160 & 1310 – to honor and provide support to the brave men and women who protect our country.
The Home Runs for Heroes Program provides financial support to charities that have distinct programs that meet the emergency and basic needs of local members of the United States Armed Forces and Veterans. For each home run hit at FirstEnergy Park during the season by the Lakewood BlueClaws, OceanFirst Foundation will provide a $1,000 donation to a designated charity.
In the eleven years of the program, $376,000 in grants have been awarded.
