On July 15, 2021, Alliance Steel LLC had the privilege to not only support our community of Gary, Indiana, but to be a part of local baseball history.
Calumet Region Baseball Sr. League 14-16 y/o will be making its first appearance at Little League State Championships in Indiana.
Mayor Jerome A. Prince called on residents, businesses, and elected officials throughout Northwest Indiana to help financially support these All-Stars. Their goal was $6,000 to help pay for meals, hotel rooms, and other travel expenses for their tournament July 22 – 25th.
On behalf of Andy Gross, Alliance Steel has graciously agreed to donate towards the team expenses, and the Mayor of Gary will be matching up to $1,000. This monetary donation closes the fundraising gap and succeeds their original goal.
This community support sparked the attention of ABC 7 News, which interviewed Drew Gross, Corporate Vice President of Alliance Steel, LLC.
Coach Earmon Hill states, “thank you so much to Alliance Steel for their generous donation to our team; it truly has inspired our team to know that a business in our city is supporting us like this. We hope to make Alliance Steel proud. Thank you”.
