The York Revolution is teaming with the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) on a variety of promotions this coming season.
In an unusual partnership, the York Revolution (independent; Atlantic League) announced that the York County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) will be the presenting partner for the entire 2010 baseball season. The Revolution will assist in raising funds and awareness for the non-profit SPCA of York County through a variety of events and promotions throughout the year.
To increase awareness for the charitable organization, new logos have been created that will be used by both parties throughout the 2010 season. The new logos feature both the Revolution eagle logo and the primary SPCA paw-print logo along with the 2010 slogan “Partners for a New Leash on Life.” The Revolution will also provide space on Sovereign Bank Stadium’s concourse level for all 70 home games for the York County SPCA to use as a spot for fans to learn more information about their non-profit organization based right here in York.
“We believed in the people at the SPCA and they believed in us. That's why this program is being launched with them,” said Revolution General Manager Matt O’Brien. “It's energizing to partner with an organization as passionate as they are. Together we'll work hard to raise awareness and funds to keep their mission pushing forward.”
Along with the added exposure, there will be many opportunities for Revolution fans to contribute to a worthy cause in our community. During certain games, the Revolution players will don special SPCA-themed jerseys that will be auctioned off benefiting the non-profit. Two dollars will be donated to the York County SPCA for every lawn ticket that is purchased to a York Revolution home game in 2010. Ballpark signage, access to a luxury suite for 30 games which can be purchased through the SPCA for its benefit, additional donations, and much more will all be part of the York Revolution 2010 Season presented by the SPCA of York County.
“The Revolution has really stepped up to the plate to help the community, and their family-friendly atmosphere will be the perfect opportunity to showcase what the SPCA is all about,” said York County SPCA Board President, Kathy Parks King. “This partnership will benefit all the loving animals in our care whose tails are eagerly wagging in anticipation of an upcoming season of promise and possibilities.”
“Bark In The Park” promotional days, where fans are encouraged to bring their pet dogs to the stadium, have been very popular at Revolution games in the past. With this new partnership, the Revolution is offering a special “Dog Days” Ticket Plan consisting of five Sunday games where fans are welcomed to bring Man’s Best Friend to the ballpark.
