Launch-a-Ball at ARVEST Ballpark

The United Way of Northwest Arkansas recently had the opportunity to partner with the Northwest Arkansas Naturals during their Friday night Launch-a-Ball promotion. Launch-a-Ball takes place at the end of the game before the firework show on Friday nights at the ballpark. Game attendees have the opportunity to purchase a ball for $1.00 and have a chance to win great prizes! Prizes include round-trip airfare for two on American Airlines, $45.00 gift certificate to Outback Steakhouse, and Northwest Arkansas Naturals merchandise.

Launch-a-Ball has quickly became a favorite amongst baseball fans at ARVEST Ballpark. The United Way participated in Launch-a-Ball on two separate occasions, and combined raised over $700.00. All proceeds benefited the United Way of Northwest Arkansas.

A big thank you to the Naturals for providing this opportunity and to Young Women's Alliance members Stephanie Wahlert, Sasi Simon, and Cassie Linton, and United Way volunteers Robbie Artherton and Garret Benoit for volunteering during this special promotion. We want to thank everyone who participated by purchasing a ball. We had a great time! We are looking forward to future partnerships with the Naturals.
