SLIDESHOW: Little Leagues, Chaplins partner in baseball benefit drive
June 17, 2010 · Updated 11:54 AM
Teams in the Snoqualmie Valley Little League and Falls Little League are raising funds this season through Chaplin's North Bend Chevrolet's 'Chevy Youth Baseball' drive.
In the fundraiser, Little League players sell tickets to win a new Chevy vehicle. Sponsored leagues will receive 2,000 fundraiser entry tickets to distribute for a suggested donation of $5 per ticket, and the league keeps 100 percent proceeds raised.
At the end of the fundraiser, four grand prize winners will be able to select their choice of either a Chevrolet Malibu or Chevrolet Equinox. Additional prizes can also be won.
Tickets will be available at the Falls Little League championships, June 7 to 18 at Aldarra Fields in Fall City, and at the Coast Invitation tournament held June 18 through 28 at Centennial Fields in Snoqualmie. Specific game times are listed at www.FallsLL.org. Tickets are also available from Little League managers. Call Falls Little League coordinator Sarah Riggs at (425) 890-1531 for more information.
The leagues are also working with Chaplins in Chevy's 'Building Dreams and Diamonds' fundraiser, in which baseball programs can win a home field makeover.
To enter, residents visit www.chevybaseball.com and enter their zip codes. Five winners will be drawn from the zip codes selected, so communities that enter the most zip codes have a better chance to win.
People who enter zip codes have a chance to win a new Chevy Malibu, Traverse, Equinox or Silverado.
The Building Dreams and Diamonds contest ends July 16.
