Mar 19th, 2014 | By | Category: Community Happenings

The Leadership Dutchess 25th anniversary class of The Chamber Foundation, Inc. is presenting a Home Run Helicopter Drop at the Hudson Valley Baseball Classic!  This event will support the mission of The Chamber Foundation which is to provide educational opportunities for youth and the workforce, to build and strengthen personal and business capacity, develop leadership skills and foster a commitment to community service.

The Home Run Helicopter Drop will take place on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at Dutchess Stadium.  This evening hosts the Hudson Valley Baseball Classic, a baseball game between rivaling teams, Marist College and the US Army.  Three thousand families and fans are anticipated at this annual event.  Tickets for the game are free and a firework show will follow.  At the end of the game, a helicopter will hover over home plate and drop 3,000 numbered baseballs.  The ball landing on or closest to the determined targeted area will be dubbed the “winner” of the Home Run Helicopter Drop and walk away with a Grand Prize of $2,000 cash.  Balls can be purchased by visiting The Chamber Foundation website at: http://www.chamberfdn.org/ .

Baseballs are only $10 each!

Tickets for the game can be reserved at the Dutchess Stadium Box Office, available Mid-March.
