Spring is in the air...find your inner George Steinbrenner!
It's March, spring is in the air! After the dreadful winter here in the Chicago area that just won't die, I think we are all thinking spring!
With spring approaching, along with it comes a great opportunity for all of us to reach out to our communities and the kids in the community! Every town has a local baseball league, soccer federation, football team, hockey club, girls softball league, you name it! Most if not all of these local leagues are volunteer run, non-for-profits that count on the support of local business owners to help keep the costs low for kids to get out and get moving and be active in sports.
Reaching out to a league won't take much effort from you (contact your local park district if you need help finding a league), it will cost a varying fee. But for that fee (which usually is not exorbitant) you typically have your company name slapped on the back of 11- nine-year-olds, hoping to hit a home run, or score a goal, or a touchdown! Heck, you will probably even get a great plaque to hang in your office with a picture of a bunch of cute, cheesy grins thanking you for your support!
SYDCON reached out last year to our local Continental Little League, and Dave got to relish in finding his inner George Steinbrenner! We are proud to announce, that we are fortunate enough to be in the position to sponsor the Crystal Lake AA Division Yankees again this year!
Come on, you know you all want to find your inner George, and while you are at it, help some kids be kids, by playing a sport they love!
