The Washington County Community Foundation (WCCF) is pleased to announce the continuation of its unique partnership with the Washington Wild Things that was specially designed to support the work of Washington County charitable groups.
The Washington Wild Things, the only Minor League baseball team in western Pennsylvania, has generously donated use of one of the luxury suites at Wild Things Park to the WCCF for the entire 2019 regular season. In turn, the WCCF will coordinate use of the charity suite by charitable groups. The donation includes 20 tickets per game for each of the 47 games of the regular season. Complimentary parking passes are also being donated.
“Last year, the response to the use of the Wild Things Charity Suite was incredible. Our charities loved it . . . some used it for outings for their clients while others used it to host appreciation events for their donors and volunteers,” said Betsie Trew, WCCF President & CEO. “We are grateful to the Wild Things for once again providing this opportunity that can be shared by so many members of our local charitable community.”
Charitable groups interested in reserving the Wild Things Charity Suite for a game should contact the WCCF at 724-222-6330. Game dates will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Since many Washington County families and charity representatives benefited from the use of the Charity Suite last year, we knew we wanted to continue our successful partnership with the WCCF in the 2019 season,” remarked Tony Buccilli, Washington Wild Things Assistant General Manager. “We look forward to welcoming the attendees to Wild Things Park and hope to deliver an exciting game that will send them home with a smile.”
Founded in 2002, the Washington Wild Things are a Frontier League Baseball team representing the East Division and have earned six division championships. Competing against the nine other Frontier League teams, the Washington Wild Things play each home game at Wild Things Park in North Franklin Township.
