MENOMONIE – Keyes Chevytown, one of 59 Chevrolet dealers from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area that partnered with local youth baseball leagues for the 2015 baseball program, has concluded a successful season with Menomonie Parks and Rec.
Keyes Chevytown provided Menomonie Parks and Rec with new equipment, a monetary contribution and an opportunity for community members to raise funds for the league via a Test Drive fundraiser.
“We’re glad we were able to extend Chevrolet’s commitment to spreading play and the possibilities it opens to the members of our community,” said Joseph Keyes, Dealer for Keyes Chevytown.
Keyes Chevytown has partnered with the Menomonie Parks and Rec for the last three years. Equipment donated by Keyes Chevytown included items such as bags, batting tees, catcher’s gear, water bottles and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also included youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.
“We truly enjoyed being involved with Menomonie Parks and Rec this year,” said Keyes. “This partnership gave us the opportunity to support the love of the game and we are thrilled to have achieved such positive results for the community.”
In 2015, nearly 1,500 Chevrolet dealers participated in Chevy Youth Baseball. Since the program began in 2006, Chevrolet has made a positive impact on more than 3.6 million children by bringing a unique experience to their community.
