Diamondback fans are lining up with Opening Day around the corner and Valley homebuilder Fulton Homes is ready to take the baseball league by storm with the Fulton Homes Home Run Program in partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Every time a Diamondbacks player hits a home run at Chase Field during the 2012 season, the Fulton Homes will donate $150 to the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association (CAMRA) or the Youth Assistance Foundation.
Last baseball season, the Fulton Homes Home Run Program scored more than $25,000 in donations. This year Fulton Homes will donate $150 per Chase Field home run to the Central Arizona Mountain Rescue Association or to the Youth Assistance Foundation. Last season the D-Backs were sixth in the league with a total of 172 home runs, 93 of them at Chase Field. D-Back fans hope the home run sweep continues this year with the teams’ strong key hitters.
CAMRA has been saving lives and educating about safety since its establishment in 1969. The team is trained technically to perform search and rescue missions in the backcountry of Arizona. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to saving lives through search and rescue operations and through wilderness emergency medical services.
The Youth Assistance Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports programs focused on preventing youth violence and encouraging social development while promoting a positive interaction with law enforcement.
“We are proud of our home team to not only be hitting talent and treasure out of the park, but also spreading it around the Valley,” said Fulton Homes CEO Douglas Fulton. “The relationship Fulton Homes has built with the Diamondbacks through this home run program is giving back to the community who builds us.”
Tempe-based Fulton Homes has built a legacy of community involvement, contributing more than $300 million to Arizona communities, schools and children in its 35 years of serving Arizona families.
