Freeway Chevrolet goes to bat for CALL

Through a partnership with Chandler American Little League, Freeway Chevrolet will provide CALL with baseball equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 in funds through a Chevy vehicle giveaway-fundraiser. The effort by Freeway Chevrolet is part of the Chevy Youth Baseball initiative sweeping the nation now through July. “Chevrolet has a long history with baseball at the national level. We wanted to bring that excitement and commitment to youth baseball in the communities where our customers and their families live,” says Mike Cook of Freeway Chevrolet. “Youth baseball has always played an important role in Chandler, so we are thrilled to support our kids in a meaningful way.”

Freeway Chevrolet will present the Chandler American Little League with equipment kits complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets, dry-erase coach’s clipboards and Chevy Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship includes clinics with experienced instructors from former MLB/MILB players and coaches or the Ripken Baseball professional staff.

In addition, a one-time monetary donation check will be presented by Freeway Chevrolet to CALL. The team also will have an opportunity to raise additional funds for their use as part of a Chevy Youth Baseball Fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation, and the league will keep 100 percent of proceeds raised. At the end of the fundraiser, there will be five winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Malibu vehicle of choice up to $30,000 in value, and in each participating market there will be a secondary prize of a home entertainment center valued at $1,000. Chevrolet is recognized on the national level as the “Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball.”

“At some point, we hope the kids or their parents will consider a Chevrolet as an official vehicle of their household,” adds Cook. “Our vehicles are ideal for transporting families, teams and their gear.”

The Chevy Youth Baseball program began in Atlanta in 2006. Now in its fifth season, the grass roots initiative has activation in more than 20 states and seeks to establish a positive connection between local dealers and the communities they serve. Since its beginning, more than $7 million dollars has been raised by Chevy for community youth baseball leagues.

The summer musical enrichment experience is slated to run from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Wednesdays, June 7 through 30.

Children will study history, theory, composition and performance during the Summer Music Academy in Chandler. They’ll learn about classical, romantic and modern music, including about composers Mozart, Brahms, Beethoven, The Beatles, Ray Charles and Dolly Parton.

Students will develop their music literacy as they study music notation, and they will examine how music works by examining rhythm, harmony, melody and form.
