ARLINGTON — Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet is providing the Stilly Valley Little League in Arlington with new equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 through the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program.
"Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families," said Tom Lane, owner of Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet. "There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball, and Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet wants to combine America's favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Arlington to enjoy."
Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet presented the Stilly Valley Little League with 10 new equipment kits complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets, whiffle balls, hitting nets, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet presented a $500 check representing a one-time monetary donation to the Stilly Valley Little League, which also has an opportunity to raise even more funds through a Chevrolet Youth Baseball fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation of $5, and each league will keep 100 percent of the proceeds it raises. At the end of the fundraiser, five winners — one from each region — will win the Chevrolet Equinox or Chevrolet Cruze vehicle of their choice. Each participating market will award a secondary prize of a television and Blu-Ray player. Tickets are available at the Stilly Valley Little League concession stand, or through sponsorship coordinator Shannon Kujath at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We are so grateful for the opportunity to participate in this awesome program" Kujath said. "It's truly an honor for our players, league and families that we were chosen by Dwayne Lane's Arlington Chevrolet as the league to benefit from the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program."
