COUNTRY BANK ANNOUNCES SPONSORSHIP AGREEMENT WITH WORCESTER RED SOX
(Worcester) – December 4, 2020 - Country Bank, a full-service financial institution serving the region with assets of $1.8B, today announced that it entered into an elite-level corporate sponsorship arrangement as a Founding Partner of the Worcester Red Sox. Country Bank’s multi-tiered sponsorship includes an iconic sign in right field atop the stands known as the “Worcester Wall” along with the Country Bank Guests Services located on the first base concourse.
The partnership between the WooSox and Country Bank also underscores their mutual commitment to the community through the WooSox Foundation and Country Bank's Charitable Giving Program by supporting local non-profits in the region through a combined charitable giving campaign throughout the baseball season.
In addition, both organizations will be working together to launch a Teacher of the Month Program that recognizes the outstanding work teachers do every day to educate and support students.
“We have been impressed and inspired by Country Bank’s sense of community involvement,” said WooSox President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg. “We see how helpful they are to various institutions and thousands of people in our region, and we welcome them to Polar Park with open arms as we work together to enhance the quality of life in our community even more.”
"In an era where spectator sports continue to be redefined by new norms of social distancing, sports sponsorships are taking on new forms. With that in mind, we couldn't be more excited to be a part of the WooSox, and the Worcester community. The addition of year-round entertainment, including ball games, concerts, and various family activities at Polar Park, is exciting for the people and businesses in the region. We all look forward to the day when we can come together again at the ballpark enjoying activities with our families and friends. We also look forward to seeing our businesses thrive once again after being heavily impacted by the pandemic," said Paul Scully, President and CEO of Country Bank.
To kick off their partnership, last week a team from Country Bank and the WooSox Mascot, Smiley Ball, delivered 500 Thanksgiving meals prepared by Old Sturbridge Village along with iconic apple pies from Worcester based Table Talk Pies to the St. John's Food Pantry for the Poor. "The alignment of our organizational values with the WooSox solidifies our commitment to service and teamwork as we continually strive for excellence in all we do," shared Scully.
