Crown Automotive Group partnered with the Rays Baseball Foundation for the "Strikeout Challenge" to end teen homelessness by matching Chris Archer for every strikeout recorded by the Tampa Bay Rays in 26 selected games throughout the season, bringing the total to $50 per strikeout. The check presentation, which took place on Saturday, September 29 during the Rays game, amounted to $7,500 donated to nonprofit Starting Right, Now.

October 8, 2018 (Tampa Bay, Fla.) - Crown Automotive Group, along with the Rays Baseball Foundation presented a $7,500 check to Starting Right, Now in support of the Tampa Bay Rays "Strikeout" Campaign to end teen homelessness. The presentation took place on Saturday, September 29 at Tropicana Field during the Tampa Bay Rays game.

The check was presented by Rays president of Baseball Operations and Starting Right, Now chairman Matt Silverman, along with Crown Automotive Group president Jim Myers, who is also a board member of the organization. Receiving the check was Vicki Sokolik, founder and executive director of Starting Right, Now.


"Crown is proud to join the Tampa Bay Rays in providing housing, mentoring and resources for homeless youth in our community,” said Myers.


Crown Automotive Group partnered with the Rays Baseball Foundation at the beginning of the season in an effort to end teen homelessness by agreeing to match each $25 donation every time a Tampa Bay Ray’s pitcher recorded a strikeout in 26 selected games throughout the season.


“I can’t think of anything more important than helping kids that have been forced to live in unsafe conditions. That’s why at Crown we feel it is our responsibility to ensure that they get a safe place to stay and the education they need to thrive in our community. What Starting Right, Now provides these young people is a life-changing step forward that we are happy to take with them.”
