Home Runs for Heroes Swings Back into Action for the 13th Season!April 23, 2021
Swinging for the fences! OceanFirst Foundation along with the Jersey Shore BlueClaws, a minor league team of the Philadelphia Phillies, and Townsquare Media stations Beach Radio 1160 & 1310 and 92.7 WOBM, are stepping up to the plate with the return of Home Runs for Heroes. Over 12 previous seasons, home runs hit by the Jersey Shore BlueClaws have scored $400,000 in OceanFirst grants for charities that help our local veterans and military heroes.
Here’s how it works. Each charity partner is assigned an inning and every home run hit by the Jersey Shore BlueClaws in the charity’s assigned inning – at home games – scores a $1,000 donation from OceanFirst Foundation. This year’s charity team includes – American National Red Cross; Army Emergency Relief; Cape May County Coast Guard Community Foundation; Catholic Charities Diocese of Trenton – Ocean Community; Chariot Riders Inc.; Deborah Hospital Foundation – HERO Care Connect; GI Go Fund; Homes for All; Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Memorial Fund; Ma Deuce Deuce; National Guard State Family Readiness Council; Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society; Operation First Response; Recalibrate; Vetwork; and Volunteers of America.
Be sure to cheer the team on and follow along all season!
