Charleston, WV (July 14, 2015) - The West Virginia Power are pleased to partner with the JeffersonWhitney Foundation for the fifth annual FAN Night on July 17, 2015. FAN Night serves as a celebration of the special needs community at Appalachian Power Park.

bringing awareness to the public of the special needs community as well as introducing families with special needs to a variety of professionals and services available to them. The night will focus on emphasizing the
achievements that can be accomplished in the face of adversity as well as celebrating those that care and advocate for the special needs community.

"We are proud to have the JeffersonWhitney Foundation as a partner ours," stated Ken Fogel, the Executive Vice President of the West Virginia Power. "The service they provide is a integral part of our daily life and is it our
pleasure to have them back for a fifth consecutive year for such an important event."

Multiple organizations and services will be represented at the game, which will also featuring individuals with special needs throwing out a ceremonial first pitch, singing the National Anthem and participating in the ballpark antics like the Suddenlink High Speed Dash.
