As Chairman of this year’s Lycoming County United Way campaign, Virgil Probasco recently represented our United Way team that year after year has led the way in providing Lycoming County residents with a championship performance. Probasco saluted the businesses who have given their time and support to help ensure the continuing success of United Way at the Williamsport Crosscutters game last Saturday night – the 14 sponsors of the 2011 LCUW Home Run Team.
As a special thank you for their generosity, each sponsor received a commemorative baseball signed by Hall of Famer great Gaylord Perry and a specially designed home plate.
This year’s sponsors were: Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships; Fairfield Auto Group; Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc.; Jersey Shore State Bank; Lycoming Mall; McDonald’s; Muncy Bank & Trust; Phillips Supply House; Range Resources; Staiman Recycling Corp.; Superior Plus Energy Services; Susquehanna Bank; Williamsport Crosscutters; and Woodlands Bank.
As important as our sponsors are, we couldn’t have raised a penny without the help of the Crosscutters players themselves. In acknowledgement of his success as the Crosscutters Home Run leader, with 5 home runs hit this season, LCUW presented Aaron Altherr with a plaque in recognition of his individual achievement as the Lycoming County United Way 2011 Home Run Team Player of the Year.
