Local Chevy dealer supports youth baseball
BENNINGTON >> In the spirit of community collaboration and teamwork taught through youth sports, Langway Chevrolet is supporting Bennington Little League through the Chevy Youth Baseball Program. This sponsorship will include both monetary and equipment donations during the 2016 youth baseball season.
Chevy Youth Baseball is a grassroots initiative that establishes a positive relationship between local dealers and the communities they serve. Langway Chevrolet is sponsoring Bennington Little League as a part of Chevrolet's nation-wide commitment to support youth sports, one community at a time. Over the course of the season, Langway Chevrolet will donate equipment to the league which may include: equipment bags, baseballs, softballs, catcher's gear, ball buckets, umpire's equipment, coach's kits, break away bases, bat racks, batting tees and first aid kits.
Also, thanks to Langway Chevrolet and other participating area Chevrolet dealers, youth baseball participants will have a chance to attend a youth clinic with local professional baseball coaches.
"We are looking forward to a great season with Bennington Little League that will be filled with exciting games and an enhanced experience for the teams through the equipment and cash donations" Larry Panzeri, of Langway Chevrolet said. "Chevy Youth Baseball is just one example of how committed our dealership is to supporting the youth and families in our community."
The 2016 program will provide assistance to approximately 300 organizations in the Northeastern region and Chevrolet dealers will contribute over $450,000 in monetary and equipment donations.
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 115 countries and selling around 4.8 million cars and trucks a year.
