WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Nov. 15, 2016) - The Winston-Salem Dash's annual Commemorative Brick "Call-A-Thon" will take place on Tuesday, November 29, from 4-6 p.m. Through this event, the Dash will raise money for the organization's 2016 Charity Partner, Veterans Helping Veterans Heal (VHVH).
Throughout the Call-A-Thon, members of the Dash's front office team and VHVH will sell engraved bricks that will be installed outside the main gates at BB&T Ballpark in advance of the 2017 season. These bricks can be personalized to honor family members or friends, memorialize a loved one or celebrate a special event.
From now until the end of the Call-A-Thon, the Dash are offering special pricing for these bricks. The first brick is just $125, and each additional brick is only $75 each. Normally, the cost of additional bricks is $100.
In addition to brick purchases, the Dash are accepting monetary donations for VHVH, which can support a veteran for a day with a $10 donation, a week with a $50 donation or a month with a $300 donation. Fans can purchase a brick or make a donation by calling the Dash at (336) 714-2287 at any point before the Call-A-Thon.
Full details on the Commemorative Brick Program are available here.
Proceeds for the 2016 Commemorative Brick program will go to Veterans Helping Veterans Heal, along with other Dash community outreach efforts. VHVH, a non-profit entity owned and managed by the North Carolina Housing Foundation (NCHF), operates a 24-bed extended-term housing program in Winston-Salem for veterans battling homelessness to ultimately transition into permanent housing and independence. This year, VHVH Works established a relationship with the Dash to supply food service staff at BB&T Ballpark. More information about the non-profit organization is available at vhvh.org.
Baseball returns to Winston-Salem on April 13, 2017, for the eighth season at BB&T Ballpark. A full schedule will be released soon, and season-ticket packages are on sale now. For more information, call the Dash at (336) 714-2287 or visit wsdash.com.
