The Minor League Baseball events include a Luxaire-sponsored Make-A-Wish night at a minor league ballpark, including promotional announcements prior to the game, welcome and thank you messages on the stadium scoreboard or message center, and outfield signage. The game sponsorships provide additional opportunities for recognizing the Make-A-Wish foundation, branded souvenir items, on-field contests, hospitality events, display booths, and on-field fundraising.
