Folks: Here's an example of organizations working together in a unique way. On Monday, the AppleSox, Wenatchee Downtown Rotary and WestSide High School cooperated on an event that supported the goals of each partner. WestSide had an open house to help community members better connect with the school, Downtown Rotary put on a hot dog feed at the school and sold raffle tickets that will benefit WestSide among other projects, and Jim Corcoran of the AppleSox gave free tickets to those who toured WestSide. It was a resounding success!! Corcoran, who has turned AppleSox into a perennial power and at the same time engaged the community in making baseball fun, sent out the following email about the event:

"Good morning everyone, 340 AppleSox tickets were handed out at the open house yesterday. That's a $2040 value. We appreciated the opportunity to partner on this project. Donating tickets was an easy way to support Westside and Rotary. Westside has always been a most accommodating neighbor to the AppleSox. We also appreciate the great work the school does for many young people in our area. We also saw another nice benefit last night, as several people from the open house came to see their first AppleSox game. Thanks for helping us to grow more enthusiastic fans!"

Now that's what I call a true community partnership. Working together, everyone's goals were achieved.
