YOUNGSTOWN, OH— The Youngstown Phantoms along with the Mahoning Valley as a whole were devastated to hear the news yesterday that GM will be ceasing production in March at its facility in Lordstown.
“GM has been a vital employer in the Mahoning Valley since 1966 and today we stand with the families whose lives will be turned upside down by yesterday’s announcement,” said Andrew Goldman, the Phantoms Team President.
In order to demonstrate our support for those families, the Phantoms will be donating a portion of ticket proceeds from our games the weekend of December 14-16 games to assist the families of current Lordstown GM employees. We also invite any current GM employee to attend any of our games that weekend at no cost.
To help donate to this cause mention “GM” when ordering tickets. The Phantoms office is open 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Call 330-747-7825 to order your tickets to help those families of the GM plant.
