The Cleveland Indians community outreach initiative, “Fill the House for Charity,” nails it again, raising $18,266 for Our Lady of the Wayside.
Via the Indians: The Indians donated $5 of each ticket sold by the participating non-profit organization back to the Charity. Also, $1 from every overall ticket sold for today’s game was donated to Our Lady of the Wayside. The current in-kind donation total is $508,601with 11 out of 13 area non-profit organization participating in Fill the House for Charity!
The Indians also provided promotional support to help raise awareness for the Charity and its event date. This included radio and TV network promotions, a webpage dedicated to Fill the House for Charity− indians.com/fillthehouse− inclusion in the game day’s Batter Up! program, a scoreboard feature showcasing the organization, various Indians autographed auction items and inclusion in pregame activities.
Included in pregame festivities was Geno, a resident at the Lakewood OLW, who fulfilled his 30-year old dream and threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Danielle Danburg sang the national anthem and Dominic Zido as the “play ball” kid.
Another great job by our friends in Cleveland!
