BURLINGTON, VT --- Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. and the Vermont Lake Monsters raised over $1,700 this summer at historic Centennial Field to support the New York-Penn League team's Share The Experience Program.
As part of the Lake Monsters' nightly sports memorabilia auctions, Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. generously donated one Keurig brewing system for each night's auction. All of the proceeds from the donation and auctioned brewing systems will go to benefit the Lake Monsters' Share The Experience Program, which turns those funds into tickets for those in the community who cannot afford to come to a Lake Monsters game and enjoy the family fun environment.
"We're so pleased that we can support the Lake Monster's Share The Experience Program to provide local nonprofits and youth groups access to the ballgames," Sandy Yusen, Keurig's Director of Community Relations/Corporate Communications said.
The $1,700 that was raised this past summer will allow nearly 350 kids from youth groups and non-profits that lack the resources to attend a Lake Monsters game next season and share in the enjoyable experience at Centennial Field.
"We are extremely excited to have team up with Keurig Green Mountain on this venture," said Nate Cloutier, General Manager of the Vermont Lake Monsters. "Their generous donations were not only a fun addition to the auction that the fans loved to bid on, but the proceeds will be instrumental in helping to share the family fun atmosphere with as many people in the community that we possibly can."
The Lake Monsters 22nd New York-Penn League season will begin in mid-June of 2015.
