Local company goes to bat for Star of Hope Friday night
Every “homeless run” equals a $500 donation during A Night of Hope
Friday, July 22, 2016
Skeeters baseball fans will get to experience a high-powered game AND help the homeless at the same time Friday, July 22 at Sugar Land’s Constellation Field. “In Texas, helping your neighbor is as American as apple pie and baseball,” said American Business Machines President and CEO Charles Brogna. “So through Star of Hope, we’ve dedicated an entire night to reaching out to the community we serve.”
ABM is underwriting the special evening which features limited edition, specifically designed jerseys for the players (to be auctioned off after the game), a donation opportunity, and each time one of the Skeeters players hits a homer against the York Revolution – it will be called a “Homeless Run” and the company will donate $500 to Star of Hope. “If it happens more than three times – we’ll double the donation,” said Brogna.
This first-time event comes at a time when Star of Hope needs the most help. Traditionally the summer is their busiest time of the year – and it’s when the Mission gets the least amount of financial support. The near triple-digit temperatures have intensified the usual overwhelming summer demands for shelter and assistance.
