BURLINGTON, VT --- New England Federal Credit Union and the Vermont Lake Monsters will once again be teaming up this year to actively support the community by offering free CHAMP appearances (called "CHAMP Sightings") to non-profit organizations and other programs that share their commitment to enhancing the well being of the local communities.
"Whether it is at the ballpark or out in the community, CHAMP stands for so many positive things," said Nate Cloutier, Lake Monsters' Executive Director - Sales & Marketing. "He creates smiles and memories, and it is such a joy to work with New England Federal Credit Union on bringing CHAMP in to the community to enhance these local events. To see CHAMP at awareness walks or at the hospital, and see the smile and hear the laughter is priceless."
This partnership between New England Federal Credit Union and the Lake Monsters will give certain organizations and programs the opportunity to have CHAMP make an appearance at their event for no charge.
Organizations and programs interested in participating in the "CHAMP Sightings" program, and having CHAMP attend their event for free must submit a formal application that can be downloaded from CHAMP Sightings page on the CHAMP section of website. Please note that depending on the event location, travel costs may apply. Interested parties should submit their application as soon as possible, as appearances are limited.
"CHAMP makes events fun while helping to draw attention to worthwhile causes that are important to our community," said Cindy Morgan, Senior Marketing Executive at NEFCU. "We're delighted to support the Lake Monsters, and we encourage all non-profits and other programs that qualify to apply for a free CHAMP Sighting at their 2015 event."
If an organization or program does not fit the requirements of the CHAMP Sightings program, regular CHAMP appearance requests can be made by calling (802) 655-4200 or downloading an application from CHAMP Appearances page on the CHAMP section of the website. Regular rates do apply - $100 per hour, plus travel expenses.
