ENID, Okla. —
Northcutt Chevrolet is partnering with Denny Price Family YMCA.
Northcutt has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, a monetary contribution, invitations to free instructional clinics and an opportunity for community members to enter a free Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes.
“Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families. Northcutt Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Jeff Turnbow, general manager for Northcutt Chevrolet.
“There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball, and Northcutt Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Enid to enjoy,” he said.
This marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s eighth year. Since its introduction, the program has helped local teams, affecting more than 3 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2012, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers across the country participated.
Northcutt Chevrolet will present YMCA with kits, including equipment bags, baseball buckets, practice hitting nets, umpire ball bags, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former players and coaches and instructors from Ripken Baseball.
In addition, Northcutt will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Enid YMCA.
Sponsored leagues across the country each will receive 2,000 free sweepstakes entry forms to distribute within the community.
At the end of the entry period, five winners — one from each region — will win their choice between a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu or Chevrolet Traverse. Each participating market will award a secondary prize.
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, so we hope young people and their parents will consider a Chevrolet as an official vehicle of their household,” Turnbow said.
