The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, and Centrix Bank today announce that the Centrix Bank Community Outing Fundraising Program helped to raise $109,869.15 for various organizations in the local community during the 2010 baseball season through ticket sales, 50/50 raffles and concessions sales at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
“Centrix Bank is delighted to again partner with the Fisher Cats to raise greatly needed money in support of numerous local charitable organizations: made even more important during this challenging economic period,” said Joe Reilly, President and CEO of Centrix Bank.
Through the Centrix Bank Community Outing Fundraising Program, non-profit organizations can retain up to $4 for every ticket they sell for a Fisher Cats game, along with a portion of the funds raised through 50/50 raffles and special concessions sales. Groups are also able to raise awareness for their causes through flyers, concourse displays and on-field presentations at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. The Fisher Cats and the Fisher Cats Foundation have helped to generate over $1.6 million for 1,900 regional non-profit organizations by making donations, in-kind donations and by hosting 482 fundraisers at the ballpark.
“We are fortunate to work along side Joe Reilly and Centrix Bank in our efforts to have a positive impact in the community,” said Fisher Cats President Rick Brenner. “Being able to help the non-profit organizations in our area raise money and awareness for their causes is something we try to do whenever we can.”
