Rancho Cucamonga, CA – The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes are celebrating 25 seasons in 2017 and long-time partner Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital will be title sponsor of the team’s “Quakes25 Celebration”.
The festivities begin Thursday, April 13th at LoanMart Field with Opening Night presented by Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, when the Quakes will debut teal and pinstripe jerseys resembling the Quakes uniforms in the inaugural 1993 season. The team will then wear the specialty uniforms and commemorative teal and black on-field caps as part of a once-a-month Saturday series, resulting in a jersey auction benefiting the Loma Linda University Children Hospital’s Vision 2020 Campaign.
“We’re excited to support our community with the Quakes for what will be a spectacular 25th Season,” said Jillian Payne, Assistant Vice President of Philanthropy for Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. “We’re truly grateful for the Quakes’ generosity and know that together, we can build hope for our community.”
Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital is located just 21 miles from LoanMart Field and is the only dedicated Children’s Hospital in the Inland Empire. Among its initiatives, Vision 2020 will provide funding for a new Children’s Hospital tower by the year 2020.
“The Quakes are proud to partner our organization, passionate fans and wonderful support with Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital and the impact they have in our community,” Quakes Vice President/General Manager Grant Riddle said. “We are honored to have the fans we do, a history of success and receive such outstanding support from the City of the Rancho Cucamonga. The Quakes are excited to recognize and celebrate our franchise, community and partners throughout our 25th season.”
The “Quakes25 Celebration” Saturdays presented by Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital are April 15th, May 20th, June 17th, July 15th, August 26th and September 2nd and will include appearances from former Quakes players, pre-game recognition of 25-year season ticket holders, partners and other special guests.
In addition to the Saturday festivities and firework shows, the “Quakes25 Celebration” theme will anchor the 2017 promotional schedule and marketing efforts. The first 1,500 fans through the gates on April 15th will take home a retro replica jersey, courtesy of LoanMart. Each of the five Quakes bobblehead giveaways will include a teal base to recognize the 25th season and the U.S. Bank hat giveaway on July 1st will utilize the teal pinstripes and the original Quakes logo from 1993.
The teal and black commemorative hat from New Era, complete with a “Quakes25” patch and embroidered bill, will be available in the Quakes Team Store at LoanMart Field and online, along with other “Quakes25” merchandise.
