WINNIPEG, MB – The Winnipeg Goldeyes and Shaw Communications Inc. have partnered to present the Shaw Home Runs for Kids promotion at each Goldeyes’ home game throughout the 2017 season.
For every home run the Goldeyes hit at Shaw Park this season, Shaw Communications will donate $100 to Kidsport Manitoba via the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation. Kidsport Manitoba is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating financial barriers preventing children from playing organized sports.
Entering this homestand, the Goldeyes have hit 17 home runs in 20 games at Shaw Park, bringing Shaw’s current contribution to $1,700.
“The Goldeyes hold a special place in the hearts of Winnipeggers and play a key role in the city’s athletic community. We are excited to cheer the Goldeyes on at Shaw Park and celebrate their successes, while giving back to our partner, KidSport, to ensure kids of all ages in Winnipeg be given the opportunity to play sports.”
Since its inception in 1995, the Winnipeg Goldeyes Field of Dreams Foundation has contributed more than $2 Million to children’s charities in Manitoba. For more than two decades, Goldeyes fans and corporate partners have generously donated to the Field of Dreams Foundation while attending games. The Fillmore Riley “Ks for Kids Program,” TCBY Radar Pitching Booth, Manitoba Pork Piggy Bank, “Path of Dreams” personalized sidewalk bricks at Shaw Park, memorabilia auctions, and nightly 50/50 raffles are several examples of how Manitobans have advanced the foundation’s mission. Additional funds are raised through events outside of the ballpark.
