Saluting Maine’s Angels Among Us
S. Portland, ME: (January 10, 2013) Once again, the Portland Pirates and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Maine have teamed up this winter on a unique program which recognizes Maine’s community heroes.
“The Anthem Community Angels program recognizes everyday heroes—people in our local community who have led, created, or otherwise been instrumental in activities that help make our community better,” said Brian Petrovek, Managing Owner/CEO of the Pirates. Fans can visit www.portlandpirates.com/anthem-angels
to submit their nominations.
Starting this month, one honoree will be chosen each month through the end of the season. Each honoree will be recognized at a home game with an on-ice ceremony and receive a special prize from Anthem and the Pirates. Anthem will also make a $500 donation in the honoree’s name to a local health-related organization chosen by the honoree.
“Maine’s community volunteers form the bedrock of what makes our state a better place,” said Dan Corcoran, president and general manager, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Maine. “We’re excited to once again collaborate with the team on this program to thank and recognize volunteers for all that they do.”
