BIMBO BAKERIES USA LAUNCHES MATCHING DONATION FUNDRAISER TO SUPPORT MEDIA LITTLE LEAGUE
Bimbo Bakeries USA, Inc. today announced the launch of a matching donation fundraising campaign to support Media Little League (MLL) with the installation of lights at the MLL Complex (1900 Providence Road, Media, PA). Bimbo Bakeries USA, maker of Ball Park Buns – the Official Hot Dog and Hamburger Bun of Little League – organized the fundraising campaign to help MLL reach their financial goal fundraiser following the team’s impressive performance in Williamsport, PA, last month.
Between now and September 15, 2023, Bimbo Bakeries USA will match 100% of all donations made (up to $30,000) to help reach the League’s goal. Donations can be made here. The fundraiser kicks off in time for the MLL’s celebratory parade on Saturday, September 9, where the players and coaches will each receive a goodie bag full of Bimbo Bakeries USA treats – Little Bites, Sara Lee bread for back-to-school and Takis snacks.
“We are so proud of our hometown team for making it to this year’s Little League Baseball World Series,” said Dana Connors, Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Bimbo Bakeries USA. “Bimbo Bakeries USA is headquartered in the Philadelphia area and, as the area’s hometown baker, we want to build on the momentum, engage everyone who enjoyed their ride this summer, and light up their facility! Ball Park Buns was on-site with the team in Williamsport (where we also have a bakery!) and have also been with MLL and all of our Little Leaguers® across the U.S. every step of the way. We look forward to supporting their continued success as they prepare for next season.”
Progress towards the goal will be tracked on the donations site and also shared on social media. There are also limited opportunities for businesses and individual donors to support the initiative and receive special recognition:
- Diamond Sponsors – $25,000+ donation recognized with name/logo on light pole sign for 20 years.
- MVP Sponsors – $10,000-$24,999 recognized on permanent plaque on the back of the third base dugout.
- All Star Sponsors – $5,000- $9,999 recognized on the permanent plaque on the back of the third base dugout.
