Ocean City Chevrolet will be a partner with the Waccamaw Athletic Association and Lockwood Folly Dixie Youth in Brunswick County this season. Ocean City Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 through a Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes.
The program began March 1 and runs through July 15.
“Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families. Ocean City Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Gary Younts, president of Ocean City Chevrolet.
The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is beginning its seventh year and has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people.
Ocean City Chevrolet will present the Waccamaw Athletic Association and Lockwood Folly Dixie Youth new equipment kits, complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets, whiffle balls, hitting net, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring former MLB/MiLB players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Ocean City Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary donation to Waccamaw Athletic Association and Lockwood Folly Dixie Youth.
The teams will also have an opportunity to raise additional funds through a Chevrolet Youth Baseball fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and each league will keep 100 percent of the proceeds it raises. At the end of the fundraiser, five winners—one from each region—will win the Chevrolet Equinox or Chevrolet Cruze vehicle of their choice. Each participating market will award a secondary prize of a television and Blu-Ray player.
As part of Chevrolet’s continued support of communities and youth baseball, Chevrolet is also bringing back Diamonds & Dreams for its third year. Participants can enter to win a baseball field makeover for their community. Chevrolet will award 12 weekly field makeover prizes and the opportunity to win the grand prize of a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. The sweepstakes will begin in mid-April; visit chevybaseball.com for more information. For more information about Chevrolet Youth Baseball, visit www.youthsportswired.com.
