School Day with Whitsons and the New Britain Bees

NBBESTIt was a great day for a School Day at the New Britain Bees Stadium! Whitsons’ Resident District Manager for New Britain Public Schools, Jeffrey Taddeo threw out the first pitch along with New Britain Superintendant, Nancy Sarra.


The game attendance was a record high for the New Britain Bees with a total of 6,501 delighted spectators. Nutrition Safaris’, Luke the Lion, aka Food Service Director for New Britain, Mike Koch, participated in game activities throughout the day along with Sting the Bee, the New Britain Bees mascot.


Whitsons presented a check for $5,000 to the New Britain Bees to have New Britain School Day at their stadium which helped bring 4,902 New Britain students from grades 3-12 out to enjoy a fun day of baseball complete with lunch.



“This is one of the most rewarding events that we do annually. The community comes together and the students have the opportunity to come to the game and enjoy a day of fun,” said Resident District Manager, Jeffrey Taddeo. “Whitsons has always supported events that benefits children and communities.”
