BURLINGTON, VT (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Vermont Lake Monsters, a Vermont triple A baseball team is partnering with Kelly Moore of Music For Mankind to raise funds for the United Nations World Food Program and the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, a Burlington, Vermont-based food assistance program.
Moore will participate by singing The Star Spangled Banner before the Vermont Lake Monsters take on the Connecticut Tigers at Centennial Field in Burlington on June 24, 2011, and the Vermont Lake Monsters will make a contribution from tickets sold through the Music For Mankind.
Music For Mankind, founded by Moore, works to raise awareness of chronic global hunger and to help provide aid around the world in the event of a disaster.
"We are so excited that Kelly and Music For Mankind is not only participating in our 31 for 31 program, but that they are so enthusiastic about the success of the program," Emily McDonald, Vermont Lake Monsters Director of Community Relations and Promotions said. "Kelly has really taken his involvement with this program to the next level."
"Working with Music For Mankind is very special to us," she continued. "Teaming up with non-profits is a huge part of who we are and to be able to make a difference state-wide is important to us. Kelly has dedicated himself to such a meaningful cause. It's one that continuously needs attention and anything the Lake Monsters can do to help his effort is very rewarding." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
