TACOMA, Wash. - The Tacoma Rainiers have proudly teamed up with Union Bank in an effort to provide deserving members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound the opportunity to experience a one-of-a-kind day at the ballpark this season.
For every home run hit by a Rainiers player during a home game this season, Union Bank has pledged to donate scholarships to the Lakewood Boys & Girls Club and the Henry T. Schatz Boys & Girls Club of Tacoma to attend the Field Day at Cheney Stadium held on Wednesday, July 24.
The Field Day event marks the second consecutive season the Rainiers and Union Bank have joined forces to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of the South Puget Sound, and it serves as the latest example of the organizations' desire to support area youth. In 2012, Union Bank sponsored a night at the ballpark that allowed Boys & Girls Club members and their families to an exclusive night out at a Rainiers game.
"We are proud to partner with the Rainiers to offer this once-in-a-lifetime experience to the great kids of our local Boys & Girls Clubs," said Maryetta Williams, SVP and Region Manager for Union Bank. "Union Bank is committed to giving back to our communities, and there is no better way to do that than providing a positive experience that brings a smile to a child."
Each Field Day participant is offered the opportunity to interact with and receive instruction from Rainiers players while taking part in baseball-themed stations set up throughout the ballpark. An exclusive autograph session will be held following the event, and each of the boys and girls in attendance will receive a catered lunch at the stadium.
The following night, Thursday, July 25, each Field Day participant and their parents will be treated to a night at the ballpark courtesy of Union Bank when the Rainiers host a 7 p.m. contest against the Tucson Padres.
