BB&T Lighthouse Project teams up with Miracle League
BB&T is helping the Miracle League Newton County through the financial institute’s Lighthouse Project.
The Miracle League received $3,500 in a grant that allowed the charity to purchase items for its marketing and fundraising, according to a re- lease. BB&T employees also served as volunteers for Miracle League fundraisers.
In September, BB&T workers Jordan Myers, Cathy Earnshaw, Sonya Sheppard and Arleshia Little helped at the Miracle League’s fundraiser at Colonel Cob’s Corn Maze.
The Miracle League is raising money to build a baseball park and field for Newton County children with mental and physical handicaps. Plans call for a baseball park with two regular fields and the Miracle League field at City Pond Park.
The goal is $1.7 million, and the league wants to break ground in 2011.
Caring hands: BB&T employees Scott White, Page White and Tonya Burnett helped the Miracle League at the Sherman’s Last Burning barbecue.
