A Day at the Ballpark to Benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
(ATLANTA, GA May 12, 2004) Kapp Koncepts, Inc., an Atlanta based interactive marketing firm specializing in web design and development treated some of its clients and friends to a doubleheader at Turner Field yesterday.
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta put on the Spring Baseball Classic for Kids to raise money to purchase an intra-operative MRI machine. This machine enhances the view of a child's brain during surgery, which ultimately benefits both doctor and patient. But the machine is expensive and scarce, which is why fundraisers like the Spring Baseball Classic are so important.
The Spring Classic featured St. Pius X Catholic High School and rival Marist School at 4:00 pm and then the University of Georgia vs. Atlanta rival Georgia Tech. Marist beat St. Pius 3-2 and Georgia Tech beat Georgia in the nightcap 12-5.
Jay Kapp, President of Kapp Koncepts, Inc., has been involved with the baseball program at St. Pius X Catholic High School for 5 seasons as a community coach. “I graduated from St. Pius X and played baseball there. I love the game and enjoy spending my late afternoons during the spring coaching the fine young men that play for the Golden Lions”, said Kapp.
The event grossed over 28,000 tickets sold. Some of those tickets were purchased by Kapp Koncepts for their friends and clients.
Included guests of Kapp Koncepts were DeckWright, Dixie Seal & Stamp, First Tee Financial, Force Printing, The Graphic Connection, Debbie McDonald (Karafotias Realty), Marsh Communications, PATH Ministry, Personal Touch Lawn Care, Siegel & Dolt, and Surfaces Like New.
Dentist Arthur “Skip” Dolt was in attendance. Dolt commented, “this is a great day for baseball and am happy that Jay included us in this event. His involvement in the community is one of the many reasons why our dental practice does business with his company.”
Several of the clients and friends of Kapp Koncepts bought additional tickets and sponsorships for their employees and customers. Sponsors and donors included AtlantaCare, Communicate, Inc., Dixie Seal & Stamp, Gifford, Hillegass, & Ingwersen, Joseph M. Todd, PC, Personal Touch Lawn Care, Team Management, and The Bowen Agency.
“The efforts of Kapp Koncepts were just part of the great effort by the entire community at St. Pius”, said Kapp. “With the help of all the players, parents, coaches, teachers, students, and alumni, Pius sold nearly 5,000 tickets to the event”, added Kapp. All of the proceeds went directly to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
