LOS ANGELES, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Frazee Paint, a leading paint company serving customers in California, Arizona and Nevada, has challenged the Los Angeles Angels baseball team to help score a $1 million donation to benefit the Angels Baseball Foundation.
To celebrate its new sponsorship of the Angels 2014 baseball season, Frazee is placing a 10-foot-tall paint can in home run territory, and if an Angels player hits a home run that lands in the can on the fly, the company will make a $1 million donation to benefit the Foundation's efforts to improve the lives of children in the community.
"We have strong ties in the community and selected the Angels as our partner to show support for one of our largest markets, just as this community has supported us for more than 115 years," said Sarah Yasukochi, marketing director, Frazee Paint. "With more than 30 stores in Greater Los Angeles and a baseball team that draws fans from all areas of Southern California, this is a great way to say thank you while helping a worthy cause."
Going to bat for charity
As part of the in-game promotion, Frazee Paint has positioned the oversized paint can in Angel Stadium's left-center field terrace turf, 450 feet away from home plate. The height of the can is 10 feet in the back and 9 feet in the front, creating a more convenient angle for the batter. The mouth of the can measures 8-1/2 feet in diameter, and a home run ball hit by an Angels player that lands in the can on the fly will benefit the Foundation.
"Frazee Paint has been a long-standing community partner, and we are grateful for their support of Angels Baseball and their efforts to help the Angels Baseball Foundation as we work to improve the lives of children in the community," said Dennis Kuhl, Angels Chairman.
Created in 2004, the Angels Baseball Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children in need, through education, health care, arts and sciences, and community-related programs throughout the region. It also provides an opportunity for young people to experience the game of baseball and its many positive attributes.
