Each year, the Connecticut Tigers host Military Appreciation Night at Dodd Stadium, and your BBB's Military Line Program annually sponsors the event!
We had a blast with local military personnel and some of our BBB Accredited Businesses with a night of food, fun & America's favorite pastime, baseball - all while honoring our troops & veterans.
During the game there is a silent auction to raise money for our BBB Military Line Student Ethics Scholarship Award. That night the players wear special “military” themed jerseys, which are auctioned off during the game. The proceeds from the auction go into our BBB Military Line Student Ethics Scholarship Award Fund. This award is presented to a child of a military family. The program recognizes a high school student in their junior year, who personifies high ethics demonstrated through leadership, community service, and overall personal integrity and academic history. This year’s scholarship winner will be announced at our Awards Banquet on November 6th at Cascade in Hamden.
BBB also hosts an Accredited Business Appreciation event at the game in one of the Luxury Suites - so let us know if you are an Accredited Business in the area, and are interested in attending next year! There will be 40 tickets available at the event for local Accredited Businesses! Come out and network with us and fellow business owners over food, drinks and a great game of baseball! Oh - and FIREWORKS!
