A VIP Suite Day has recently been held at the Great American Ball Park, arranged by Mission Foods which is based in Dallas Texas, in honor of the Wounded Warrior Project.
During the Cincinnati Reds Major League Baseball game, service members and veterans, along with their families, were hosted in suites to watch the game. The rosin bag and game ball were delivered to the pitcher’s mound by a representative of the Wounded Warrior Project.
Mission Foods brand manager, Stephanie Saner spoke of the Cincinnati Reds game, saying it was the ideal opportunity for families from the Wounded Warrior Project to have fun while spending quality time with each other. She added that Mission Foods was proud to be able to support the cause. The chief development officer with the Wounded Warriors Project, Adam Silva said that the support from Mission Foods was appreciated as the day provided an opportunity for veterans and servicemen to develop relationships which would help during their transition to routine life. The Wounded Warriors Project, together with Mission Foods, will stage more events in an effort to raise awareness of the organization and how it helps wounded servicemen and veterans.
Each event is promoted, possibly utilizing the flyer printing skills of a local print company. Mission Foods has launched a fund raising campaign which will last until March 31 next year, donating 10 cents from the sale of every pack of Mission Tortilla chips. The donation fund will contribute towards services and programs which are structured specifically to offer support to the warriors.
