The CDBL Rockets 10U Youth Baseball Travel Team held a fundraiser at the South Elgin McDonald’s on Redington Road Thursday, February 7th, and they hit it out of the park!
Coaches Tom Wyse, Dave Binz, Dave Zierk, and Bob Patterson along with team volunteers Jackie Wyse,Kristen Binz,Kristin Braden, Mike and Ann Srecka,Scott and Erin Koertgen, Melissa Schultz, Tammy Carpenter, and Matt Cumpata all worked during this event, in support of the Baseball Team. They worked behind the counter taking orders, preparing freshly cooked meals and handing out food and desserts to patrons.
Many coaches, parents and team members sold pies and dressed up in a pie box during the entire three-hour event. All 144 pies sold were donated by Mr. Bear and 100% of those proceeds went directly back to the team, who was raising funds for a trip to Pigeon Forge, TN for the 2019 Ripken Experience.
Twenty percent of the proceeds from the McCoaches Night sales were donated directly to the CDBL Rockets 10U Team.
The event was made possible by the generosity of the Bear Family Restaurants, and Chicagoland McDonald’s Franchise Owner-Operator, David Bear and his amazing staff, who assisted with the event throughout the night.
David Bear was excited to host the team, coaches, and all the volunteers. Bear said he always loves the positive energy these events bring to the restaurant. The McDonald’s staff enjoy partnering with the team as it gives them a chance to give back to the community they are in, according to Bear.
“I’m proud to play a part in bringing the community together and supporting, The Travel Baseball Team,” Mr. Bear said.
