BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Freeholder Director Shanel Y. Robinson invites Somerset County nonprofit and community organizations to enter the annual TD Bank Ballpark drawing for a chance to win tickets to a home game and seating in the ballpark’s 30-seat community box.
The deadline to submit entry forms is Friday, Feb. 21.
To be eligible, applicants should be a nonprofit organization with 50 percent of its clients residing in Somerset County, or be a community organization that serves county residents. If the facility is not located in Somerset County, it must provide significant community service or a volunteer element to Somerset County residents.
“It has been our tradition to make the 30-seat community box available for nonprofits and community organizations,” said Shanel Y. Robinson. “The work that these organizations commit to and the volunteerism that is provided to our residents are invaluable. Free tickets and box seats are one small way the Board of Chosen Freeholders can show appreciation.”
The drawing will be held in March to choose the winners. Organizations will be assigned seating-dates in the order in which they are drawn. Participants will be notified accordingly.
Entry forms must be received or postmarked by 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, and include the organization’s name and address, a contact person’s name and phone number, the organization’s mission or purpose, and information about its volunteer work and/or community service.
