Non-profits invited to participate in the Community Organization of the Night program with the Legends!

January 9, 2012
WHITAKER BANK BALLPARK (Lexington, KY) The Lexington Legends are inviting non-profit organizations to participate in their Community Organization of the Night program during the 2012 season.

The Community Organization of the Night program, sponsored by Waffle House, offers non-profits a variety of opportunities to publicize their work at Whitaker Bank Ballpark and on Legends radio broadcasts during each of the Legends' 70 home games. Hundreds of organizations throughout central and eastern Kentucky have participated.

"The Legends place a huge emphasis on being a strong community partner," said Legends General Manager Seth Poteat. "With that in mind, it's really the least we can do to open up our facility each and every game and allow 70 unique non-profit organizations the opportunity to spread their message and raise awareness among the thousands of Legends fans that come through our gates each year. We're so pleased to continue this program, and we thank Waffle House for their continued support as the title sponsor of our Community Organization of the Night program."

Organizations may set up a display on the concourse, where they can greet fans and distribute information. Before the game, a representative of each Community Organization of the Night throws a ceremonial first pitch and is interviewed on the public address system. The representative also is a guest on the radio broadcast for a half-inning during the game. Each organization receives four complimentary tickets to their game. Solicitation is not permitted.

Game dates will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please download and fill out the 2012 CON Registration Form and send the completed form to Sarah Piester, the Legends Director of Community Relations and Special Events. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah at 859 422-7855, or email her at [email protected].

The Legends, a Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros, will open their home season April 12 against the Kannapolis Intimidators at 7:05pm with a Legends Poster Giveaway to the first 1,000 fans through the gates, along with $1 Beers & Pepsi and a postgame Ford Firework Show.


The Lexington Legends were voted the #1 in the Family Entertainment category by readers of the Lexington Herald-Leader in 2011.
