Anyone who gives back to their community through their work, actions or volunteer efforts can be a nominee.
Those selected as Hometown Heroes – and up to seven of their family members and friends – will be guests of the Ziff Law Firm at a Pioneers game at Dunn Field, where they will be seated in a specially designated box. The Hometown Hero will be recognized during the game by the public address announcer.
The Ziff Law Firm has saluted military veterans in its Veteran of the Game honor at each Elmira Jackals hockey game for the last three seasons at First Arena. Over that time, nearly 100 veterans have been applauded by Jackals fans for their service to our country.
Through our Veterans of the Game program with the Elmira Jackals, we have been so pleased to meet and honor local veterans and give them the recognition they deserve. Veterans are not the only people in the community worthy of recognition, though.
There are everyday heroes in our midst, and these are the folks we’ll be recognizing this summer. Our Hometown Heroes could be police officers or firefighters, volunteers, or they could be other people doing good work in the community.
The Elmira Pioneers play in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League, which has nine teams from across New York State. The Pioneers’ season begins June 6 in Albany and the first home game is June 8 against Newark.
The Pioneers have 23 home games scheduled in the regular season, which concludes in early August.
The Ziff Law Firm looks forward to turning the spotlight on more people making a difference in our community.
Service to your community, whether through one’s occupation or volunteer work, is as American as baseball and apple pie, so we can’t imagine a better way to thank our Hometown Heroes. The Ziff Law Firm feels privileged to sponsor this program and looks forward to meeting our heroes and sharing their stories.
“Part of my dream with the purchase of the Elmira Pioneers was to give back to the community I was born and raised in,” said Don Lewis, co-owner of the Pioneers. “I am proud to partner with the Ziff Law Firm in hosting the Hometown Heroes program.”
