Sports fans probably know that Apple Vacations sponsors several major teams nationwide. We’re the proud sponsors of three Major League Baseball teams, the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago White Sox, and the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies. As sponsors, we host special events at the games, give away vacations, and invite our employees and customers to be our guests at home games.
Just this week, Apple Vacations hosted “Dominican Republic Day” with the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The first 20,000 fans were presented with a commemorative poster featuring past and present White Sox players who hail from the Dominican Republic. In addition, the Chicago White Sox honored Mark Buehrle’s perfect game with “Mark Buehrle Day”. Fans also received a Mark Buehrle baseball card, sponsored by Apple Vacations.
One of the highlights of the night was when the Dominican Republic’s Minister of Tourism, Francisco Javier Garcia, threw out the first pitch and took a photo with pitcher John Danks. Apple Vacations executives and officials from the Dominican Republic Office of Tourism took an on-field photo with Dominican White Sox pitcher Octavio Dotel. There was also an on-field performance by Dominican Republic Folkloric Ballet. Along with thousands of fans, Apple Vacations hosted 70 travel agents and eight hotel partners and celebrated a White Sox win!
