Gold Sox/Bears against Domestic Violence -- Donations in Exchange for Tickets

May 11, 2017 - Great West League (GWL) - Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox News Release

Gold Sox and Bears Against Domestic Violence

The Marysville Gold Sox and Yuba City Bears have partnered with Casa de Esperanza this season to help increase awareness and provide support for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and human trafficking.

In order to help victims of domestic abuse, the Marysville Gold Sox and Yuba City Bears are asking fans to bring in any unused blankets or stuffed animals in exchange for free general admission tickets to the game. "When a child is taken out of an abusive situation, the best thing that can help them recover is a stuffed animal" says VP/GM Michael Mink.

Casa de Esperanza is a leader in the violence prevention field, and has engaged in many key policy initiatives and programs that have made an enormous impact. They have also been recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for their research and help in communities across the world.

"Casa de Esperanza is excited about spending our summers with the Gold Sox and Bears," said Casa de Esperanza Executive Director Marsha Krouse-Taylor. "It is indeed a pleasure to work with sport heroes in taking a stand against domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and human trafficking."

"This has been a personal goal for myself and to be able to help locally has been a great blessing. Baseball is a great game that not only gives excitement to fans, it can make a very positive impact in the community to help in various areas" says Gold Sox and Bears VP/GM Michael Mink.
