Ballpark Community Box Available to Nonprofits
Requests due by Feb. 26 for drawing
Requests are now being accepted to use the 30-seat community box at the TD Bank Ballpark. To be eligible, applicants should be nonprofits or community organizations that are located in Somerset County or have a facility based in Somerset County that serves the citizens of Somerset County . Applicants should provide a significant community service or volunteer element to Somerset County residents.
“Since the time the ballpark was constructed by the county, one 30-seat community box has been available for the benefit of nonprofits and community organizations,” said Freeholder Director Jack M. Ciattarelli. “We are pleased to continue this tradition.”
Requests must be received by 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 26, and must include the organization’s name and address, a contact person and phone number, the purpose of the organization and information about volunteer and/ or community service.
Requests should be made in writing and mailed to Ginny McCall of the Somerset County Administrator’s Office, 20 Grove St., P.O. Box 3000, Somerville, NJ 08876-1262 or hand-delivered to the Administrator's Office on the third floor.
Organizations may receive an entry form by calling (908) 231-7040 or by visiting the county Web site at www.co.somerset.nj.us/spotlight.html and printing a form for mailing, faxing or hand-delivery.
Forty home-game dates are available during the Somerset Patriots’ 2010 baseball season. A drawing will be held in early March at the county administration building to determine which community groups will use the box. Organizations will be assigned available dates in the order in which they are drawn. There is no need for a representative of the organization to be present at the drawing.
Organizations using the community box must comply with all applicable rules, regulations and ordinances. Groups are responsible for arranging for and purchasing any food or beverages.
The community box is accessible to people with disabilities.
