After reviewing over one hundred amazing applications over the past couple of months, the Vermont Lake Monsters are pleased to announce the nine kids named to the 2016 Little Lake Monsters Community All-Stars.
A committee selected the nine winners based on their answers to three questions that focused on sportsmanship, living a healthy lifestyle, and their efforts in the community. Each of the winners will be rewarded with an experience of a lifetime and live the life of a professional baseball player for a day on Friday, August 12.
“The Little Lake Monsters Community All-Stars program was created to get kids and families talking and thinking about important issues and life lessons, and giving kids something to strive for,” said Lake Monsters’ Executive Director of Sales & Marketing Nate Cloutier. “Living a healthy lifestyle, being a good sport, and doing good things in your community are important values to our partner Northwestern Urgent Care as well, so this promotion is a winner for everyone involved. To see the smiles on these nine kids’ faces is truly what it is all about.”
Festivities for the kids start at 3pm, and each of the winners will experience what it is like to be a Lake Monster player for a day, and will:
- Sign a one-day promotional baseball contract with the Lake Monsters
