SAN DIEGO, Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Early last spring Frazee Paint, a leading paint manufacturer with retail locations in California, Arizona and Nevada announced an exciting partnership with the San Diego Padres. With this partnership came a season long promotion in which Frazee Paint built a 10-foot-tall paint can and offered a $500,000 reward to the Padres Foundation if any of the San Diego Padres players hit a homerun into the can.
The promotion detailed that if the Padres were not able to hit a home run into the can during the season, Frazee Paint would support the Padres Foundation with an end-of season donation of $20,000. On Saturday, fans of the San Diego Padres along with members of both Frazee Paint and the Padres Foundation will gather at Petco Park during the pre-game ceremony to take part in the presentation of this generous gift. The ceremony takes place this Saturday, September 17 before the 5:35pm home game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.
"Frazee's donation to the Padres Foundation is part of our long-standing and on-going commitment to the San Diego community," says Donna Seaton, Vice President of National Sales. "On behalf of Frazee's over 350 San Diego employees, we are proud to partner with the Padres in supporting local programs for our region's children."
The Padres Foundation - a fund of The San Diego Foundation, a not-for-profit public charity - is the primary source of funding for the club's outreach initiatives in the areas of children's health, education and youth baseball/softball. The Foundation continuously raises funds through several programs that call for fan participation. To read more about the Padres Foundation, visit http://mlb.mlb.com/sd/community/foundation.jsp.
