Home Runs for CEE

Play State Farm/MLB's Go To Bat Game and Earn Chances to Win a Grant for the CEE!

The Council for Economic Education (CEE) has the privilege this year of being one of the charities selected to participate in State Farm and Major League Baseball's "GO TO BAT" program - an online, charitable-giving initiative.

Here's how the program works:

The program started Monday, July 12th, the night of the State Farm sponsored Home Run derby, and runs until September 26th (the entire second half of the MLB season).

Visit this web site to register and pick the CEE as the charity of your choice:

For every day you log-in until September 26th, you will be given one entry in the competition. If you choose to play the "homerun game", you have the chance to win 10 additional entries each day.

State Farm will randomly select a weekly individual winner and award a donation to the charity they chose to support. For every home run hit in MLB games during the previous week, State Farm will donate $100 to that individual winner's charity. In addition, the selected winner
will be awarded a trip for two to the 2010 World Series. 10 of these gifts will be awarded.

The charity with the most entries at the close of the competition will receive $25,000.

Please take the time to register for this, and login regularly to give yourself and the CEE more chances to win!
