Bethesda Big Train Baseball
Since 2009, the Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation has supported Big Train's Nonprofits of the Night program. This program not only builds community through baseball, but also is an opportunity for community nonprofits to come out to Povich Field to showcase their organization's work.
Each participating nonprofit receives:
100 free tickets. Some organizations use the tickets as a fundraiser, others distribute the tickets to clients, volunteers, and staff. Ticket values are $9 for adults, $7 for students/military/senior and $5 for kids (5-12).
A table on the concourse to set up a display and space for a banner to promote the organization. Some groups hand-out information, others recruit volunteers.
Recognition in the team's game night program.
A representative is announced to the crowd to throw out a ceremonial first pitch just before the game starts.
If your nonprofit organization would like to become a Big Train Nonprofit of the Night, please contact Bruce Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on how to apply, click here.
