Partners Bank Delivers $1,000 Home Run Donation to Grahamtastic Connection

Grahamtastic Home Run Hits Campaign 2019
Partners Bank recently donated $1,000 to Leslie Morissette (l) of Grahamtastic Connection as part of the Home Run Hits Campaign, in conjunction with the Sanford Mainers baseball team.  Morissette was presented the check by the Bank’s Digital Marketing Assistant, Jacob Ouellette, who also serves as the Mainers Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors.

SANFORD, Maine—Partners Bank is proud to team with the Sanford Mainers in its annual support of the Home Run Hits Campaign for Grahamtastic Connection. In conjunction with the Mainers, the Bank achieved its 2019 home run goal of making a $1,000 donation.

Under the Mainers Home Run Hits Campaign, the Bank pledges to donate $100 for every home run, up to a maximum of $1,000. To qualify, the home runs must be hit by a player on Sanford’s New England Collegiate Baseball League team and must occur during home games at Goodall Park.

Entering the final game of the 2019 season with nine home runs, the Mainers got their tenth when Elliot Curtis of the University of Kentucky belted one over the right field wall midway through play—boosting the home run total to the campaign’s maximum of ten, for an exciting finish to the year.

Springvale-based Grahamtastic Connection provides free laptops, tablets and Internet access to more than 150 seriously ill and hospitalized children annually, to help them stay connected with friends and family, as well as teachers and classmates. In addition, Grahamtastic has a lending library of 17 telepresence robots for schools to borrow, so children can attend classes remotely from their hospital beds or homes.

“We are honored to participate again this year in the Home Run Hits Campaign with the Sanford Mainers,” said Partners Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “Grahamtastic Connection provides such wonderful, caring services to children and their parents facing difficult challenges; a campaign like this is truly one in which everyone comes out a winner.”
