Lombardi Chevy-Buick helps to equip the WBSA
Lombardi Chevrolet-Buick is partnering with the Wilmington Baseball Softball Association in Wilmington.
Lombardi Chevrolet-Buick has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, invitations to free instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to earn donations for their league via a Test Drive fundraiser.
“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support,” said Jim Lombardi, president of Lombardi Chevrolet-Buick.
“Lombardi’s and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Wilmington.”
2017 marks Chevrolet's Youth Baseball program's 12th year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 6.7 million young people in communities where Chevrolet's customers live, work and play. In 2016, more than 1,500 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
Lombardi Chevrolet-Buick will present an equipment kit that includes useful items such as bags, scorebooks, industrial-strength batting tees, ball buckets and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts.
The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Lombardi Chevrolet-Buick will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Wilmington Baseball Softball Association.
Sponsored leagues across the country will have the chance to earn additional funds as community members take test drives at their partnering dealership to help support the league.
In addition to its commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the official vehicle of Major League Baseball.
“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, safety and fun, so we encourage young people and their parents to make a Chevrolet the official vehicle of their household,” added Lombardi.
