Blockchains VP of Corporate Affairs and Strategic Initiatives Matt Digesti and Senior Associate Athletic Director for the Nevada Wolf Pack Craig Fink presenting the ceremonial check to Community Chest Executive Director Erik Schoen and his wife Stephanie at the Nevada Men’s Basketball Team’s last home game on February 29, 2020.
Before a nearly sold-out and enthusiastic crowd, Blockchains concluded its second season-long run of donating $50 for every blocked shot over the course of the Nevada Men’s Basketball Team’s 2019-2020 season. With another talented and athletic team, the total amount donated by Blockchains to Community Chest for all of its programs came to $5,400.
Combined with the $6,000 from last year, Blockchains total donations to Community Chest have now exceeded $11,000. All of these funds help to support the continued building of capacity in rural Nevada communities so that all have the resources needed to thrive.
In addition to the donation, Blockchains and Community Chest were mentioned at halftime of every basketball game for each of the dozen or so games.
We are so thankful to Blockchains for its continued support of Community Chest. We would also specifically like to thank Jeff Berns, Blockchains’ CEO, and Elaina Duffy, Blockchains’ Vice President of Brand.
