Invitation to Cover
San Francisco Giants World Championship Trophy Tour presented by Bank of America
visits Salinas PAL this week on February 20, 2015
Who: 2014, 2012 & 2010 Major League Baseball's Commissioner's Trophies, crafted by Tiffany & Co.
What/Why: The San Francisco Giants World Championship Trophy Tour presented by Bank of America will continue its three-month public tour in Salinas this February 20th. Fans will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with the trophies and to support their local Junior Giants Baseball League by making a contribution to view the trophy.
This will be the third public trophy tour held in the past three years. The focus of the San Francisco World Championship Trophy Tour presented by Bank of America is to share Major League Baseball's Commissioner's trophies, crafted by Tiffany & Co., with Giants fans in Junior Giants communities throughout northern California.
Junior Giants is the flagship program of the Giants Community Fund, which serves more than 20,000 boys and girls in over 80 underserved communities throughout northern and central California and southern Oregon. It is a free and non-competitive baseball program that has served as a model for MLB youth initiatives. Using baseball as the hook, Junior Giants provides opportunities for children to demonstrate confidence and leadership, to link with adult mentors and to develop a strong understanding of the importance of literacy and healthy living. Locally, Salinas PAL has been running the Junior Giants program for 22 years and serves over 800 participants annually that would not normally have the opportunity or means to play baseball.
Salinas PAL has been providing FREE programs for children in our community since 1991 and is working to expand programs with the opening of our Salinas PAL Youth Center. Our organization depends on the generous donations from the community and will be accepting donations at the trophy viewing. Donations collected will help Salinas PAL continue our efforts, and keep kids off the streets and away from gangs and violence.
