The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and Kost Tire and Auto Service helped the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania this past baseball season with the ‘Hurl the Pearl’ contest. Fans purchased ‘pearls’ (soft baseballs) to hurl at the team’s pinstriped truck for prizes as it circled the warning track. Nightly winners received a $25 gift certificate to Kost Tire and Auto Service. The grand prize winner received four tickets to a Yankees game, a $50 gas card, the chance to throw out a first pitch at PNC Field on Opening Night 2014; and a suite at PNC during the 2014 season. The unique fundraiser raised more than $12,000 to support the club. At the check presentation, from left: Rob Crain, president and general manager, RailRiders; Julianne Kalasinski, club development director; and Erwin Kost Jr., vice president, Kost Auto Service and immediate past president, Boys and Girls Clubs of NEPA.
