Employees, students, caregivers and other City of Hope supporters can team up with State Farm and Major League Baseball to support City of Hope — and earn a chance to win a trip for two to the 2010 World Series at the same time.
State Farm and Major League Baseball named City of Hope as one of several charities in their “Go To Bat” program, which invites fans to play a free game on State Farm’s website.
Winners are chosen weekly for a trip for two to games 3 and 4 of the 2010 World Series, in addition to a $100 donation to the winner’s selected charity for every home run scored at a Major League Baseball game that week. The charity with the most entries at the end of the 10-week program will be awarded $25,000.
“City of Hope is honored that State Farm and Major League Baseball chose our organization to be a part of this exciting program,” said Steve Martin, associate vice president of marketing.
Supporters can register online at www.statefarm.com/gotobat and then scroll to the category “Health” to select City of Hope as their charity of choice before playing the game. Participants earn an automatic entry every week by signing up for the program. Additional entries can be earned just for logging in every day. The game ends Sept. 26.
