7-Eleven DC Area Franchise Owners Step Up to the Plate
Local franchise owners and 7-Eleven partner to donate nearly $20K to NWLL through Project A-GameUpdatedFriday June 24, 2016 byAdmin.
More than 150 players and parents from the Northwest Little League community were on hand at Friendship Rec Center Wednesday evening as several DC area 7-Eleven store owners presented the league a check for $18,520 – NWLL’s largest-ever cash donation from a single organization.
Addressing the crowd, NWLL Board President Ted Koopersmith thanked 7-Eleven’s Field Consultant Arslan Amjad and NWLL sponsor lead Maria Barry for coordinating the partnership, noting how sponsors are critical to the success of the league. “Local benefactors like 7-Eleven help us offset operating expenses like equipment and field maintenance while keeping registration fees relatively low and providing scholarships to any family that asks.”
Through Spring 2017, 7-Eleven will serve as platinum sponsor for NWLL’s Softball, Class A, AA, and AAA divisions as well as this year’s Summer Skills Combine. Koopersmith added, “we will seek even more opportunities to recognize 7-Eleven’s incredible generosity in the coming year.”
7-Eleven Market Manager Patrick Doran remarked, "we are proud to be able to utilize our community involvement donation program Project A-Game to partner with our DC Area franchisees to make this contribution to Northwest DC Little League and thank them for allowing us the opportunity to become a platinum sponsor. We look forward to continuing to build a strong partnership."
To cap off the evening, 7-Eleven supplied all kids in attendance with its newly introduced Classic Cheeseburgers, chips, beverages, as well as coupons for free Slurpees. Oh thank Heaven!
