Join Johnny's Homerun Club

Posted by Mark McCray |

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News:

The Children’s Health Fund is looking to recruit new members for the “Johnny Damon Yankees Home Run Club,” which gives Yankees fans an opportunity to root for their team and help bring quality health care to homeless and low-income children. For 20 years, the CHF has helped provide health care to thousands of disadvantaged children via mobile medical units.

The Yankees Home Run Club launched back in 1988 with the help of Don Mattingly, raising money and awareness for the CHF’s programs. Bernie Williams took the baton from Mattingly, and has since passed it on to Damon, who took over the role in 2006 after he joined the Yankees.

Becoming a member is easy, and there are two ways to do it: make a pledge for every home run hit by the Yankees this season, or make a one-time gift donation for the entire 2008 season.

Members may be eligible to win field-level box seat tickets to a game in this final season at Yankee Stadium. According to Patricia Abrams of the CHF, the Yankees Home Run Club has raised more than $1 million since its inception thanks to people just like you.
