The Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Class AA; Eastern League) have announced details for a Prevention Night that is scheduled for April 19 at NYSEG Stadium. The event is part of a partnership with Broome Opioid Abuse Council (BOAC) Drug Free Communities
In order to create an environment where families and community members can enjoy a fun-filled night and create lasting memories, no alcohol will be served during the Rumble Ponies’ game that evening. This is part of this year’s “We Care Wednesdays”, which will be announced separately.
“Being a part of the community with outreach efforts aimed at helping families achieve FUNN experiences is something we will always strive to do,” stated team owner John Hughes. “Getting involved with an organization that is working hard on critical issues which are impacting friends and families across the Southern Tier is the kind of effort the Rumble Ponies can stand behind and contribute to.”
April is Alcohol Awareness Month and coincides perfectly with the Rumble Ponies’/BOAC Prevention Night.
“We aim to highlight underage drinking prevention, and provide an alcohol-free family fun activity,” said Kara Skellett, Drug-Free Communities coordinator. “With the assistance of the Rumble Ponies, we will put the focus on community education, outreach and prevention, and substance abuse treatment.”
Gates open at 5:30 for the April 19 game with the Portland Sea Dogs. Details of the event will be provided at www.bingrp.com with additional sponsors mentioned during the game.
