Grafton, WI – Lakeshore is excited to announce the return of two staff members from the 2017 team, Chris Salazar and Taylor Clarizio. Both got their start with the Chinooks last summer as Marketing & Operations interns. Now returning to the organization, Salazar and Clarizio will assume the roles of Sales & Marketing Associates.
In their new roles, Chris and Taylor will assist with all ticket sales including group tickets, season tickets, and single game tickets. They will also assist with a number of different marketing campaigns and initiatives during the off-season and during the 2018 season. Both sit on the planning committee for a new event coming to Kapco Park this summer, the 2018 Mindful Tri Cancer Walk in partnership with the Aurora Health Care Foundation which will take place on June 16th.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have both Taylor and Chris back with our organization for 2018. Not only will they make an impact in sales but help us plan out the 2018 season. They did an amazing job for us in 2017. Their hardwork and dedication helped them stand out as interns last summer. Our biggest goal with our internship program is to bring in past interns for seasonal and full time employment roles within our organization,” stated Assistant GM Eric Snodgrass.
Taylor is in her final semester at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse pursuing a degree in Sports Management. Born and raised in Greenfield, Taylor still resides there. Chris is in his final semester at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside pursuing a degree in Sports Management. Born and raised in McHenry, IL, he currently resides in Milwaukee with his wife Adriana.
The 2018 season is presented by Port Washington State Bank with the home opener set for June 1st at 6:35pm against the Kenosha Kingfish. Season and group tickets are currently on sale with single game tickets available for purchase at the end of April.
