5/6/2014 - Bluefish Announce New Adopt-A-Suite Program
(Bridgeport, Conn. – May 6, 2014) – The Bridgeport Bluefish have announced that along with six partner organizations they will now have a new Adopt-A-Suite program. The six partner organizations include the Hall Neighborhood House, Junior Achievement, the Sterling House, the Fairfield Theatre Company and the Family & Children’s Agency. 
“Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut is pleased to partner with the Bridgeport Bluefish in their Adopt-A-Suite program,” said Bernadine Venditto, President of Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut. “This is a terrific community collaboration and a win for everybody involved. We are grateful to the Bridgeport Bluefish for offering an opportunity that will help Junior Achievement raise awareness about our mission to empower young people to own their economic success.” 
The Bluefish have assigned suites at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard to the non-profit organizations who will receive all proceeds above $350. For example, if the non-profit organization rents the suite for a night for $750 (the normal nightly rental fee), the non-profit will then receive $400. All of the non-profits participated in “decorate your suite,” day on Saturday April 12th sprucing up each of their suites adding their organizations own personal design to each suite. 
“The Adopt a Suite program, is the brainchild of Bluefish Assistant GM Jamie Toole,” says Bridgeport Bluefish General Manager Ken Shepard. “It is another example of the Bluefish organization working with non-profit organizations to foster partnerships that ultimately benefit those that need the help most in our community.”
The non-profits who signed a suite contract before April 15th have exclusive rights to rent their adopted suite. If a contract was signed after April 15th then both the non-profit and the Bluefish can rent the suite with the Bluefish having the booking priority of the suite. 
“It's great to have a local community minded organization like the Bluefish reaching out to help nonprofit centers like the Hall Neighborhood House,” said Bob Dzurenda, Development director and Community Relations Director of the Hall Neighborhood House suite. “We hope everyone who passes through our suite will gain a better understanding of the services the Hall Neighborhood House has been providing for over 125 years.  The Bridgeport Bluefish organization is a great asset to our community.”
