State Farm Go to Bat Program
SkillsUSA is rallying all its fans to help support participation in the Go-To-Bat program, an online, charitable initiative driven by State Farm’s commitment to helping communities get to a better state. As a Go-To-Bat charity, SkillsUSA has an opportunity to win one of the weekly $18,000 donations that will be awarded during the second half of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season. Supporters can help rally for their favorite cause and increase SkillsUSA’s shot at capturing a donation along with giving themselves a chance to win a trip for two to the 2011 World Series.
SkillsUSA supporters and baseball fans can visit www.statefarm.com/gotobat, select SkillsUSA on the website, then swing for the fences in the State Farm Go-To-Bat game to increase the batting average of SkillsUSA. Once a week, for 10 weeks, State Farm will choose the charity with the highest Go-To-Bat game batting average and make a donation of $18,000 in support of its cause. Also, an individual winner who goes to bat for the winning charity will be randomly selected and receive a trip for two to Games 3 and 4 of the 2011 World Series. A total of 10 winners will be drawn during the Go-To-Bat program, which stretches through the baseball summer and concludes on September 26.
Fans can increase both their chances and SkillsUSA’s chances of winning by returning daily to www.statefarm.com/gotobat and playing the online State Farm Go-To-Bat game. Players can earn additional entries and increase their chances to win by sharing their participation on Facebook.
The Go-To-Bat program will culminate during the 2011 MLB World Series with a pre-game ceremony showcasing its collective impact and recognizing the individual winners and the winning charities. Also, State Farm will announce and present a $25,000 donation to the charity that finishes the promotional campaign with the highest Go-To-Bat batting average.
The game is more fun than last year and easier, too. You can play up to three times a day. Just register and play ball.
