Throughout the summer, the Madison Mallards & TDS Metrocom once again teamed up to support local charities through the ?Stealing for Charity? program which took place during every home game this summer at the ?Duck Pond? at Warner Park. Every time a Mallard stole a base at home, TDS pledged 25 dollars to be split between St. Vincent de Paul & Tyler?s Place. The Mallards stole a total of 54 bases at home which has resulted in a donation of 675 dollars to each of the charities. This is the second consecutive year that TDS & the Mallards have partnered on this event and it has become a staple at every Mallards home game.
?We?re excited to be able to support both of these local charities and present them with a check,? said Matt Loch, Vice President of Sales for TDS Metrocom. ?We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Mallards and being able to ?Steal for Charity? on an ongoing basis.?
A check to both organizations was presented on Friday, October 21st at 10:30am at ?Duck Pond.?
