Vanguard Partners with Mr. Met, WellLife Network and Queens Community House to Help Raise Funds
A dynamic mix of key community advocates are joining forces on April 2, 2017 in a benevolent effort to support local causes in the nation’s most diverse borough. Long Island-based Vanguard Insurance Agency is teaming up with Queens baseball celebrity, Mr. Met, to help raise awareness and funds for deserving charities at the Generosity Queens 5K Run/Walk in iconic Flushing Meadows Corona Park. As part of its ongoing initiatives to give back to the NY area it serves, Vanguard, a leader in customized Employee Benefits Solutions for businesses and non-profits in the tri-state area, is sponsoring two non-profit organizations – WellLife Network and Queens Community House (QCH). Vanguard has partnered with these two groups because of their wide-reaching, invaluable services benefiting the people and communities of Queens and Long Island.
The Mets will host their annual blood drive from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Thursday in the Foxwoods Club at Citi Field. Fans donating blood will receive a voucher for two tickets to select home games in April or May, excluding Opening Day. Donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 with parental permission.
