The Eugene Emeralds baseball team, in partnership with Oregon Medical Group and their Community Spotlight program, provided Looking Glass staff with a group of seats and a prominent booth at the ball game on Wednesday, July 19th. Additionally, a Looking Glass video played prior to the game and Executive Director Craig Opperman threw out the first pitch (actually, at the last minute Craig opted to hand the ball to the son of our HR Director to do the honor for him - always putting the kids first!).

The heavy promotional presence at the game, attended by almost 4,000 people, afforded Looking Glass staffers the opportunity to discuss programs and needs with the community and increase some general awareness for our organization. It was also a fun night for the staff to enjoy the ball game.

 Looking Glass staffers take a break from their promotional booth shifts to enjoy a beautiful night at the ball park.
