TBL Networks says “Play Ball” with the Richmond Flying Squirrels
By Steve Glissman | May 20, 2011 | Insights
Earlier this year, TBL Networks received the opportunity to raise funds for CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation (AKA CJSTUF), a wonderful local charity that raises funds to provide financial assistance to families of children with chronic and life threatening illnesses. As a contribution to help CJSTUF, the Richmond Flying Squirrels generously donated the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Squirrels’ game. This gift was auctioned at our charity virtual golf tournament, and the winning bidder was no other than TBL’s own Patrick Tredway.
Despite the looming threat of rain and potential for YouTube infamy, Patrick found a way to focus on the task at hand, and, most importantly, not embarrass himself. While his pitch might have been a little high, the ball easily made its way into the catcher’s mitt.
Special thanks to the Richmond Flying Squirrels for their generosity in their donation and their continued support that they provide to the Richmond community. Finally, please take the time to follow CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation on Twitter or “Like” them on Facebook to learn more about how you can help this great organization.
