Below is a breakdown of all the contributions the team made to the community during the 2011 season.
BREAKDOWN OF YORK REVOLUTION 2011 CHARITABLE EFFORTS:
The Revolution showed their appreciation for that terrific and on-going fan support with an ambitious-as-ever season of charitable fundraising partnerships. As the hallmark of the team’s community-first attitude and love for York, the organization once again worked in numerous ways to generate impressive numbers for area non-profits and causes. The highlights include:
York County Libraries grossing $100,000 as the Revolution’s official presenting partner for the 2011 season, through various team-sponsored YCLS fundraisers including the giant DownTown bobblehead raffle and merchandise sales at games.
$46,000 dollars raised for a myriad of community groups through the Revolution’s group ticket fundraising program, where groups sell their tickets through a special portal of the team’s website, and keep a healthy percentage of all sales.
Concessions fundraising through the team’s concessionaire, Legends Hospitality. Various non-profit groups raised over $17,000 for their organizations by volunteering as concession stand workers throughout the season.
Similarly, many non-profit groups also took advantage of volunteering in the Weis DownTown Playground for Revolution home games, which raised them over $9,000.
