Recently, FHTM added the University of Kentucky’s student -run, 24-hour dance marathon, DanceBlue, to its Home Runs for Hope roster. DanceBlue raises $600,000+ annually for the University of Kentucky’s Pediatric Oncology Clinic.
Home Runs for Hope is a charitable endeavor that works in conjunction with local organizations to provide box seats to see the Lexington Legends, the Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros. The program provides a day of fun at the ball park for abused, neglected, underprivileged, or cancer-stricken children.
“These are children who have experienced great pain and tragedy in their lives. We hope that a day of hot dogs, popcorn and baseball will provide a little joy in their young lives,” said FHTM President and Founder Paul Orberson.
On September 2, Home Runs for Hope will provide these deserving organizations with tickets to one of the last Legends home games of the season. The organizations will be announced, and their attendees will be displayed on the Jumbotron. These children, along with their mentors, parents or guardians, will enjoy hours of minor league baseball in a carefree, comfortable setting.
FHTM has participated in several other philanthropic ventures and community-based events. Because FHTM values teamwork, commitment and determination, the company jumped at the opportunity to sponsor this year’s Bluegrass State Games. FHTM’s support of Cell Phones for Soldiers helped our troops overseas connect with their family, and their involvement with Wrap Up America provided many blankets to those in need.
The charitable attitude of the company stems from Paul Orberson and other
executives all the way down.
