SIDEWINDERS WIN COPPER CACTUS AWARD FOR WORK IN COMMUNITY
(10/13/05) The Tucson Sidewinders have been named the 2005 Wells Fargo Copper Cactus Award recipient for Community Service in the Tucson and Southern Arizona communities.
The Sidewinders were selected from twelve finalists within the 20 to 49 employee bracket and were presented with the award at the 8th annual Copper Cactus Awards banquet Thursday, October 13th.
The award recognizes locally owned companies that strive to improve the surrounding community through contributions, volunteerism and support of non-profit organizations.
“When Melinda and I acquired the Sidewinders franchise six years ago our mission was to not only keep to team in town, but to make an impact on local youth,” said owner Jay S. Zucker. “We want to do more than positively affect just a couple of children, but to reach thousands of kids in the Tucson area.”
The Sidewinders aim to spread positive messages to area children such as staying in school and keeping away from drugs and gang violence. The team hosts programs including D.A.R.E./G.R.E.A.T. Kids Days and the Baseball Buddies program. Players and staff members also make appearances at schools and pediatric units at area hospitals, local military bases in addition to partnering with Little League associations around Southern Arizona.
