Nonprofits benefit at Schaumburg Boomers games
The Schaumburg Boomers' 2021 single-game promotions schedule includes several cause-based nights for local nonprofits, and now two new every-game promotions join the mix.
These are "Singles," sponsored by Kraft Singles, and Raising Cane's "Raising K's."
The Kraft Heinz Co., maker of Kraft Singles American Slices, will make a donation to Rise Against Hunger every time a Boomers player hits to reach first base this season.
Also, every time a Boomers pitcher strikes out an opposing hitter at a home game this season, Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers will donate to Anderson Humane, an animal welfare organization with locations in South Elgin, Bloomingdale and North Aurora.
"This community is incredibly generous," said Michael Larson, vice president and general manager of the Boomers. "I really love the opportunities that we get to be a conduit for fundraising, by companies and foundations, to support not-for-profit organizations across a wide spectrum of deserving causes."
