OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Dodgers and Chesapeake Energy Corporation are proud to honor Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma as Chesapeake Energy Community All-Stars during Saturday's Dodgers' game against the Omaha Storm Chasers at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
The Chesapeake Energy Community All-Stars program identifies organizations that have gone above and beyond to make a difference in their communities. In partnership with the Dodgers, Chesapeake will honor five organizations throughout the 2015 baseball season.
"We're so fortunate to live in the state of Oklahoma, which is full of so many generous organizations," OKC Dodgers President/General Manager Michael Byrnes said. "Dodgers games provide an ideal platform to assist in Chesapeake's mission of recognizing deserving organizations that better their communities."
More than 14,000 people are involved with Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma, which aims to build "girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place," according to the organization's mission statement.
"At Girl Scouts, girls have the opportunity to do something big," Shannon Evers, chief executive officer at Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma said. "They discover themselves and they learn about who they are, what they care about and what interests they may have."
Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma will be honored at the end of the third inning of Saturday's game.
Lindsay McIntyre, with Chesapeake, will present the award. Karen Sandlin, public relations and marketing specialist for Girls Scouts Western Oklahoma, will accept the award on behalf of the organization.
First pitch for Saturday's game is set for 7:05 p.m. at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The award presentation, including an informational video about Girls Scouts Western Oklahoma, will follow the end of the third inning.
