Partnering with the Fort Lupton Parks and Recreation in Fort Lupton, Purifoy Chevrolet joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, a monetary contribution, invitations to free instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to enter the Free Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes.

    “Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families. Purifoy Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,” said Jay Gross, new car sales manager for Purifoy Chevrolet.
    2013 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s eighth year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, affecting more than 3 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2012, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.
    “There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Purifoy Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Fort Lupton to enjoy,” added Gross.
    Purifoy Chevrolet has present the Fort Lupton Parks and Recreation with equipment kits with items including things like equipment bags, baseball buckets, practice hitting nets, umpire ball bags, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts.
    Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 2,000 Free Sweepstakes entry forms to distribute within the community.  At the end of the entry period, five winners — one from each region — will win their choice between a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu or Chevrolet Traverse. Each participating market will award a secondary prize.
    “Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, so we hope young people and their parents will consider a Chevrolet as an official vehicle of their household,” said Gross.
