Johnny Damon goes to bat for a good cause
I recently received this e-mail and thought I’d pass it along. It seems like a very worthy cause from Johnny Damon, who continues to impress us all with his giving spirit.
CHF’s Johnny Damon Yankees Home Run Club is a fun way that fans can root for the Yankees and help bring quality health care to homeless and low-income children. For 20 years, CHF Projects across the country have provided health care to thousands of disadvantaged children via mobile medical units.
In 1988, Yankee legend Don Mattingly helped launch CHF’s Yankees Home Run Club to raise money and awareness for our programs that provide comprehensive health care to underserved children. After the first baseman’s retirement, centerfielder Bernie Williams stepped up to the plate to captain the Club. Continuing a strong tradition of leadership, Johnny Damon took over the role of captain in 2006.
Anyone can become a member by either making a pledge per home run hit by the Yankees this season, or by making a one-time gift for the entire season. Members may be eligible to win field-level box seat tickets to a game in this final season at Yankee Stadium. Thanks to the generous support of loyal Yankee/CHF fans, the Club has grown over the years and raised more than $1,000,000 to support children in need.
