"We are so grateful to the Trenton Thunder for once again sharing this wonderful 'Gift of Baseball' with the children we serve," said Donna C. Pressma, CHSofNJ President and CEO. She continued, "This gift allows hundreds of our children to experience a live baseball game. It is a chance to make memories that last a lifetime, and we cannot thank the Trenton Thunder enough for always thinking of our CHSofNJ children and families."
