Fox Lake, Apr. 15, 2019 – Ray Auto Group is partnering with Grant Township Area Athletic Association in Fox Lake. Ray Auto Group has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, invitations to FREE instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to earn donations for their league via a Test Drive fundraiser.
“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Ray Auto Group and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Fox Lake.” said April Villarreal, Events Administrator for Ray Auto Group. “Chevrolet believes in the power of play as a way for young people to build the skills needed to be successful in the future and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”
2019 marks the fourteenth year of Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program and has benefitted over 7 million players since it launched. In 2018, more than 1,100 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Ray Auto Group will present Grant Township Area Athletic Association an equipment kit that includes useful items such as equipment bags, first aid kits, batting tees, and T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, or instructors from Ripken Baseball.
