BASEBALL PROMOTION RAISES FUNDS TO FIGHT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope and Circuit City are sponsoring a promotion to raise money to fight domestic violence, the Home Run for Kids program. Throughout the 2005 season, Circuit City will donate $1,000 to the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation each time a New York Yankees player hits a home run at Yankee Stadium. Yankees Manager Joe Torre established the foundation in 2002 to develop and fund educational programs to help end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. Fans can follow the effort on the YES Network, where home runs scored and money pledged will be tallied during each game broadcast. The program will culminate in a check presentation at the end of the season with Joe Torre, Samsung, and Circuit City.
