2020 Sponsorship

2020 North Wake Partners & Sponsors

A huge shout out and thank you to our 2020 Partners and Sponsors. Be sure to support their efforts in giving back to our league this year. We truly depend on our community support year after year. It is our dedicated supporters who have fostered and cared for our baseball program year after year for 40+ years! We thank you, our community thanks you and most importantly our kids who love the game of baseball, thank you!

This past year, we were able to fund facility maintenance and the upkeep needed to maintain and beautify our baseball complex. We hope to replace team equipment, address additional field maintenance items and maintain overall league operations in the coming year.

In the coming weeks, we are revamping the program with new ways to support North Wake. If you would like to participate, email  . Please pass this email along to fellow businesses and/or colleagues who would be interested in our program. Let's get this started and ready to go!
