DAYTON, AUGUST 24, 2021 — Presented through the generosity of Cincinnati Bell, a dedicated American Red Cross corporate partner, the Dayton Dragons will be honored as Humanitarians of the Year during a virtual event on November 2, 2021. Through the Dayton Dragons Foundation, the Dragons have initiated many programs that directly promote, highlight, and give back to those in our community.
“The Dayton Dragons have been instrumental in the success of blood drives held at the Red Cross chapter office in Dayton.” said Lynne Gump the executive director of the Miami Valley Ohio Chapter of the American Red Cross. “Their support and promotion of our blood drives have encouraged residents of the Miami Valley to roll up their sleeves and donate lifesaving blood and blood products.”
This inaugural event provides an opportunity for us to come together to celebrate the inspiring efforts of the Dayton Dragons and highlight the Red Cross mission in the Miami Valley. The funds generated by this event support the life-saving services and programs of the Red Cross in Hardin, Logan, Shelby, Champaign, Clark, Madison, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Darke and Preble counties.
“Cincinnati Bell is honored to partner with the Red Cross and support this important event,” said Jason Praeter, President and General Manager of Cincinnati Bell’s Entertainment and Communications business. “We congratulate the Dayton Dragons organization on this well-deserved recognition for its ongoing commitment to the Miami Valley.”
