Strike Out Sponsor: Charter Bank Wisconsin
The Eau Claire Express had a great season on and off the field in 2019. One of our more memorable signings was to partner with Charter Bank to become the team’s Strike Out Sponsor for the year. For every strike out that Express pitchers recorded over the course of the 2019 season, Charter Bank donated $10 to the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic.
In 2019, the Express pitching staff combined for a record high 614 strike outs. On Thursday, Charter Bank presented a check valuing $6,140 to the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic.
The Eau Claire Express would like to thank Charter Bank for their generosity and commitment to supporting the Eau Claire community.
