A Scotts Valley woman is the winner of a large donation to a charity she supports and a trip to the 2012 World Series courtesy of State Farm and Major League Baseball.
Sarah Stumbo is the ninth weekly winner in the State Farm Go to Bat program, “an online, charitable giving initiative driven by the commitment State Farm makes to helping communities get to a better state.”
Stumbo had one of four national charities to choose from to “Go to Bat” for, Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, American Red Cross, and Teach for America. She chose Habitat and won $18,000 for the charity.
“We’re thrilled that Sarah Stumbo took time to Go to Bat for a great organization like Habitat for Humanity and that we’re able to partner in this donation,” said State Farm spokesperson Sevag Sarkissian. “It’s exciting to see baseball fans and community members across the country stepping up to the plate for worthy causes they believe in.”
Habitat for Humanity currently has a project in Scotts Valley on Blake Lane where they are building three townhomes that should be completed in early spring 2013. Habitat for Humanity Santa Cruz County has built over 30 projects in the county in the past 23 years.
In addition to winning the donation, Stumbo will head to the World Series, where she will participate in an on-field ceremony showcasing the collective impact of the Go to Bat program.
