(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—Alison Prost, Maryland Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), issued this statement after Baltimore Orioles Executive Vice President John Angelos announced a $300,000 pledge to local charities in support of the club's Birdland Community Heroes program. Former CBF Vice President Kim Coble was honored through the program in 2017. CBF will receive a portion of the pledge.
"We were excited anyway with Opening Day, and the Orioles' dramatic start. This gift makes it all the more special. Many thanks to the Orioles, and the Angelos family. The Birdland Community Heroes program provides much appreciated help to non-profit organizations like ours, and many critical initiatives in Baltimore and beyond."
Editor's note: Among its many local programs, CBF has been educating local school children about the Inner Harbor for nearly four decades aboard the authentic Chesapeake workboat Snow Goose. We also recently partnered with the City of Baltimore to help coordinate innovative financing for 90 special landscaping projects in three dozen Baltimore neighborhoods."
