The Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, are proud to announce that the team’s annual HOPE Week (Helping Others Persevere and Excel) will take place from August 31-September 4.
HOPE Week is a New York Yankees initiative designed to reach out to remarkable people and organizations who are worthy of recognition for their inspiring actions and support of their communities.
The Thunder are currently receiving nominations for honorees and will select five individuals or organizations to be honored during the week. Nominations can be emailed to Amanda Rossetti at [email protected] consideration.
Each event will consist of Thunder players, mascot and staff visiting a location and giving back to the local community and/or a presentation prior to that night’s game.
The New York Yankees began HOPE Week in 2009 in an attempt to inspire people to follow the actions of a few great individuals who have proved how much they care for their own communities by giving back and helping as much as they could. As a pillar of the community in Mercer County, the Thunder are proud to join the Yankees in celebrating HOPE Week for the fourth consecutive year in 2015.
Tickets to all Thunder games are available at Trentonthunder.com and by phone at 609-394-3300.
