Spokane Indians stolen base sponsorship results in TDS donation to Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County

Check presented after "TDS Fiber High Speed Stolen Base" promotion

Spokane, Washington (November 4, 2021) – TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) was joined today by Spokane Indians Senior Vice President Otto Klein to present a donation to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County.

The $1,000 donation was the result of the “TDS Fiber High Speed Stolen Base” sponsorship during the 2021 Indians season, as well as part of TDS’ commitment to supporting community organizations in the Greater Spokane area.

Since opening its first Clubhouse in 2001, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County have provided thousands of young people with a safe and positive place to go after school and throughout the summer. Over the last two years, as the COVID-19 pandemic increased demand for services for at-risk youth, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County continued to provide crucial programs to help children succeed academically, live healthy, and build skills necessary to become productive members of the community. 

TDS is currently building a 1,100-mile fiber-to-the-home network in Spokane, which will ultimately connect more than 88,000 homes and businesses with high-speed internet. An important part of TDS’ mission is helping the communities in which it serves. In addition to the stolen base promotion, TDS is also a sponsor of the Boys and Girls Clubs’ largest fundraiser, the Doors to Dreams Dinner and Auction.  

“Through the impact of their Clubhouses, innovative programming, and forward-thinking leadership, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County have made an amazing difference in our community. Few causes are more important than improving the lives of children and ensuring their success. TDS is proud to partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs to help meet essential community needs,” TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Andrew Petersen said. 

“TDS and the Spokane Indians are valued supporters and friends of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane County. From sponsoring our events to donating to our Club families, we appreciate that both TDS and the Spokane Indians are committed to helping support Spokane’s youth and making great futures a reality for hundreds of Club kids,” said Dick Hanlin, Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County Executive Director.

“We’re proud to partner with TDS and help so many kids in our region,” said Otto Klein, Senior Vice President of the Spokane Indians. “We understand the importance these local Clubhouses have on our community and look forward to expanding our footprint together in the future.”
