 Niles, OH — The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley and the Mahoning Valley Scrappers have joined together to help raise funds for chronically/terminally ill children in our community throughout the 2017 season. “We are excited about teaming up with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers in an effort to spread our mission to educate and help chronically and terminally ill children of the Mahoning Valley”, states Tony Spano, Founder and Executive Director of the Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley.

Sunday, August 6th has been designated as The Hope Foundation of The Mahoning Valley Awareness Night at the Scrappers at Eastwood Field in Niles. In addition, when fans purchase tickets online for the August 6th game or any other game this season, The Hope Foundation will receive a portion of the sale, when they type in the word “HOPE” in the Special Offer Code box. The HOPE code is valid for all online tickets, including game day purchases up to 4:00pm the day of the game. The offer is not valid with the purchase of tickets at the window or by phone or for opening day, July 4 or buck nights.

The Hope Foundation will also fundraise with jersey auction for the Scrappers game worn Star Wars jerseys (R2D2), which will be worn the Friday, July 28th game against the Williamsport Crosscutters, courtesy of Liberty Comics.

The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley (H.F.M.V.), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2007 after the increasing success and popularity of the Game of Hope Charity Basketball Classic. Our unpaid staff, volunteers and supporting individuals and organizations are committed to our mission. They provide charitable and financial support to local charities that share our goal of improving the lives of chronically/terminally ill children. With money raised from donations and our signature fundraisers, The Foundation provides grants of up to $5,000. For more information about The Foundation please visit the website at
