Pawtucket, RI – August 7, 2013 – Dunkin’ Donuts and the Pawtucket Red Sox, two Rhode Island traditions, recently hosted members of the Child and Family Community Programs in the Dunkin’ Dugout at McCoy Stadium.
Through the Dunkin’ Dugout, Dunkin’ Donuts will provide 800 tickets to local youth agencies to attend PawSox home games at McCoy Stadium this season, giving young fans the chance to hear the crack of the bat and maybe even catch a home run ball. The Dunkin’ Dugout is part of Dunkin’ Donuts’ Community Partnership, an outreach program that supports youth-based charitable efforts to benefit communities that Dunkin’ Donuts serves.
"The Dunkin’ Dugout is a wonderful program that helps young fans who may not have the opportunity to see a ballgame experience our national pastime in person,” said Michael Mahon, Dunkin’ Donuts Field Marketing Manager. “Dunkin’ Donuts is committed to supporting the communities that it serves, and we are proud to once again offer this opportunity to support countless youth groups across Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.”
"The Pawtucket Red Sox have a long history of community service and we strive to make McCoy Stadium the most inclusionary venue in New England,” said Mike Tamburro, Pawtucket Red Sox President. “We are pleased to team up with our friends at Dunkin Donuts in reaching out and making dreams begin for a new generation of fans at McCoy Stadium."
For more information, or to request a game schedule and consideration for tickets, please contact Larisa Kupris at 401.351.8855 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Every effort will be made to accommodate game preferences.
