Cutters & Panda Patriot Power Team Up to Find Missing Kids
The Williamsport Crosscutters are is proud to announce a continuation of their partnership for the 2017 baseball season with BairFind Foundation, this year joined by Panda Patriot Power in the ongoing search for missing children. Panda Patriot Power has sponsored this year’s BairFind sign featuring area missing children that the Cutters place on the stadium concourse for all the fans to see.
The BairFind Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to find missing children. BairFind produces high definition, colorful and attractive signs for sports stadiums, arenas and other venues that feature photos of each city’s missing children, reaching millions of people annually across the United States and greatly increasing the chances that featured children will be safely located. BairFind was founded in 2010 by former Williamsport Cubs pitcher Dennis Bair, and has been supported since its inception by the Williamsport Crosscutters.
Cutters Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Gabe Sinicropi stated, “As soon as Dennis contacted us in 2010, we knew we needed to help out. How could you not? From putting missing children on our team photos to posting signage in the ballpark, we have seen BairFind grow and the number of teams participating increase exponentially. When they were looking for sponsorships to help further their mission, Panda Patriot was the first company we thought of. Their commitment to Cutters charity initiatives is second to none.”
