All Stars hit Home Run for United Way!

Story Field was the place to be on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 where the West Coast League All Star Game & Home Run Derby was held. United Way staff, board members past and present, donors and volunteers eagerly watched the fenceline as each player came up to bat for the home run derby. Country Financial, the main event sponsor selected United Way to received proceeds for each home run hit by the all stars during the derby. For every green ball home run, United Way would receive $100, and for each regular ball home run, the organization would receive $25. The total raised was $1,450, which was amazing! The derby winner scored a total of 11 home runs by himself.  This was such a fun way for United Way to earn some funds towards its 2016-2017 campaign to support its 21 local partner non-profits. Big thanks to Country Financial for supporting United Way!
