Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Hawthorne Chevrolet is sponsoring Hawthorne Baseball/Softball Association as a part of Chevrolet’s nation-wide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time.
Also, thanks to Hawthorne Chevrolet and other participating area Chevrolet dealers, youth baseball participants will have a chance to attend a youth clinic with local professional baseball coaches.
“We are looking forward to a great season with Hawthorne Baseball/Softball Association that will be filled with exciting games and an enhanced experience for the teams through the equipment and cash donations,” said Steven L. Barna, of Hawthorne Chevrolet .“Chevy Youth Baseball is just one example of how committed our dealership is to supporting the youth and families in our community.”
The 2016 program will provide assistance to approximately 300 organizations in the Northeastern region and Chevrolet dealers will contribute over $450,000 in monetary and equipment donations.
