FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 20, 2017
The Victoria HarbourCats are very pleased to announce the establishment of the HarbourCats Foundation.
The maturation of the HarbourCats over their first five seasons has seen them develop into a leader on the field in the West Coast League, while also making Royal Athletic Park a gathering place for the community, and a can’t-miss summer tradition in Victoria.
As such, the owners of the club feel that the HarbourCats can be, and should be, a leader in our community. That is where the vision for the HarbourCats foundation was born.
“It is our pleasure, on behalf of the Victoria HarbourCats Baseball Club, to launch the HarbourCats Foundation,” says founding president Richard Michaels. “The foundation will support baseball and softball efforts across the Greater Victoria area by helping make these two sports more affordable for all children.”
Whether it be assisting in the purchase of much-needed equipment, or registration fee support, the HarbourCats Foundation will strive to foster the growth and sustainability of baseball and softball so that all youth enjoy the opportunity to play these wonderful pastimes.
HarbourCats Foundation board members:
Founding President: Richard Michaels
Vice President: Fraser Campbell
Treasury: Kelly Mann
Secretary: John Pollard
Advisory: Gary Beyer
In the coming months, the HarbourCats Foundation will announce multiple exciting initiatives.
Donations can be made by contacting any of the HarbourCats Foundation board members or by contacting the HarbourCats team office.
Online donations will be accepted through a HarbourCats Foundation link on the team’s website (www.harbourcats.com), which will be established in the coming days.
