Lorenzo Bomnin Chevrolet has joined with the Howard Palmetto Baseball Softball Association to provide baseball equipment, instructional clinics, money and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 in funds through a vehicle giveaway.
The program is part of the Chevy Youth Baseball initiative being rolled out across the nation from March through July.
“Baseball is a great American past-time and Chevrolet is proud to have a long-standing history with this tradition on a national level,” said Lorenzo Llerena, owner of Bomnin Chevrolet. “Lorenzo Bomnin Chevrolet is bringing that level of commitment for youth baseball to the Miami community where our customers and their families live.”
“Our youth baseball program in Miami is truly cherished and we are happy and excited to support the kids in a significant way,” added co-owner Arnaldo Bomnin.
Lorenzo Bomnin Chevrolet donated equipment kits, equipment bags, baseball buckets, dugout managers and Chevy Youth Baseball tee shirts. Also included are clinics with experienced instructors, many former Major League players and coaches or from the Ripken Baseball professional staff.
The company also presented a check to the HPBA and the organization has the opportunity to raise additional funds as part of a Chevy Youth Baseball Fundraiser. Sponsored leagues across the country will receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a donation and the leagues will keep all of the money raised. There will be five winners of a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Cruze ($30,000 value) and a $1,000 home entertainment center second prize in each participating market.
