LAFCU, Lugnuts expand Community Champions Program to Include First Responders and Military
Nominations are open for the LAFCU Community Champions program, which has been expanded this year to honor police, fire and medical first responders as well as current and veteran members of the military at Lansing Lugnuts games this summer.
“The LAFCU Community Champions program is back for its fourth season with the opportunity to recognize those who help us every day locally–our first responders,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU senior vice president of marketing. “Our partnership with the Lansing Lugnuts offers the ideal location for community recognition of those who selflessly serve or have served our country far away and at home.”
Community Champions receive four free tickets to a Lansing Lugnuts LAFCU Fireworks Spectacular, the opportunity to throw the first pitch and in-game recognition on the ballfield’s videoboard.
Selection of LAFCU Community Champions honorees will be made throughout the summer prior to individual LAFCU Fireworks Spectaculars. Nominations will continue to be accepted through Aug. 18.
“Including our own local first responders as Community Champions makes perfect sense,” said Nick Grueser, Lugnuts general manager. “Our military members protect us on the battlefield, and our first responders protect and care for us right here at home. They are all deserving of our gratitude and recognition.”
Nominations of deserving Community Champions should include their employing organization or branch of service; rank, rank at time of discharge or position held; awards and other recognition received; and community work. Submit the information via email or mail it to LAFCU Community Champions. P.O. Box 26188, Lansing, MI 48909.
