Q: What could be better that watching a baseball game on a beautiful summer evening?
A: Watching that same baseball game from the comfort of an air-conditioned suite and private box - with free food, drink, and prizes!
On Tuesday, August 22nd, HDI Philly held a special event for chapter members and practitioners at Arm & Hammer Field in Trenton, NJ to see the Trenton Thunder (the Class AA affiliate of the New York Yankees) battle the Portland Sea Dogs. This was a free event to thank our members for their support of HDI Philly, and all 50 tickets were sold out for the suite. One of our local chapter sponsors, Diversant sponsored the “adult beverages” and raffle prizes for attendees. We thank Diversant for their support! We raffled off Trenton Thunder caps at the conclusion of each inning, and a grand prize of an official Thunder jersey at the end of the game.
It was a fantastic evening of good food (burgers, hot dogs, BBQ chicken), good conversation, meeting new friends and HDI members, and a couple of visits by the Trenton Thunder mascots during the game. A few attendees brought their son or daughter, and it was great to see families having fun together! We have heard from many attendees thanking the our team for putting on this 1st time event, and I certainly see this as an annual tradition as we continue to grow the chapter. Thanks to our leadership team (Alexis Townsend, Kathy LaVallee, Randy Stark, and Laura McNally) who all helped to plan, organize, and manage this very successful event.
