The Elizabethtown Sports Park (ESP) and The Cecilian Bank (TCB) have partnered together in an agreement starting in 2021. The Miracle Field will officially be renamed to “The Cecilian Bank Miracle Field at Elizabethtown Sports Park” and TCB will be recognized at all miracle field events. Both partners will work together to increase awareness of the ESP’s local programming and will be supported by marketing at TCB’s local branches.
Greg Pawley, President & CEO of TCB, said, “The Cecilian Bank wanted to be involved in The Elizabethtown Sports Park’s mission to increase their connection to community events. In particular, Miracle Field’s inclusion of all athletes is a remarkable way to improve the quality of life for those with disabilities in our community. Our investment in the park will be an invitation for everyone to participate in all future community events at the Elizabethtown Sports Park and The Cecilian Bank Miracle Field.”
As the ESP team continues to grow community offerings, the Miracle Field is of particular interest. In 2019, ESP was able to host over 120 students with special needs for kickball. In this new partnership both the ESP team and TCB look to expand these offerings. Through this 10-year partnership, the ESP and TCB will be able to provide more community programming to all.
Elizabethtown Sports Park General Manager Todd Yancey said “At Elizabethtown Sports Park we look to provide a sense of belonging for everyone who enters our park; that all feel welcomed. Nowhere does this ring truer than our Miracle Field. We are extremely excited to partner with The Cecilian Bank as we continue developing our community programming for Elizabethtown.”
Elizabethtown Sports Park is operated by Sports Facilities Management and managed by Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau (ETCB). ETCB Director Janna Clark added “The goals of the park and The Cecilian Bank are so closely aligned in serving the economic growth and quality of life here in Etown. TCB’s step to include their name on such a special field at the park shows what a tremendous community partner they are.” This partnership goes into effect January 1, 2021 for ten (10) years with the ability to extend terms at a value of $220,000. ESP and TCB look forward to sharing their excitement for this new partnership with a ribbon cutting ceremony and official sign unveiling to be held later in the spring. Information on this will be announced at a later date.
