Padres Foundation announces "Wins for San Diego"


SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Padres and the Padres Foundation today launched the "Wins for San Diego" community giving initiative.  The "Wins for San Diego" program benefits local charitable organizations whose missions support the Foundation's "Live, Learn, Play and Serve" pillars.  

The "Wins for San Diego" initiative was inspired by Alfredo Harp Helú, a partner in the club's ownership group.  Mr. Harp, along with his Foundation, pledges $2,000 per win during the 2013 season to the Padres Foundation's community efforts.  This pledge was made to further enhance the Club's charitable support of the San Diego community.  
Mr. Harp formed the Alfredo Harp Helú Foundation, which has provided more than $500 million in support of education, culture, health, the environment and sports projects.  Since its formation, the Harp family has personally donated to the Foundation more than $800 million which represent the value of the organization, its assets and projects.

The Padres Foundation is the primary source of funding for the club's outreach initiatives in the areas of children's health, education, fitness and youth baseball/softball.
