Perricone Juices and Angels Baseball donate more than $42,500 to Miracles for Kids

Through the Third Annual Home Runs for Kids Program, Perricone Juices (with Perricone Farms based in Newport Beach) has donated more than $42,000 to Miracles for Kids, a Southern California-based nonprofit organization that supports families of children diagnosed with critical illnesses by providing financial and emotional support. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the MLB season due to COVID-19, Perricone Juices doubled its past donation of $250 per Los Angeles Angels home run to $500 for every home run during this year’s shortened baseball season, continuing to make a tremendous impact on the lives of the children and families Miracles for Kids serves.

“Our team is so fortunate to have such loyal partners and supporters in Perricone Juices and Angels Baseball. Their ongoing support through the Home Runs for Kids program has helped our team change lives,” said Autumn Strier, co-founder and CEO of Miracles for Kids. “Because of the pandemic, the population we serve is struggling more than usual and the funds that were raised this season will make all the difference.”

Joe Perricone, CEO of Perricone Juices, is a longtime supporter of the OC-based organization, taking part in various programs and volunteer projects throughout the year and was even named Miracles for Kids’ 2018 Miracle Maker Honoree at the Annual Night of Miracles Gala. CEO and partner, Bob Rovzar, serves on the nonprofit’s board of directors and is a longtime advocate.

The Los Angeles Angels’ final game of the 2020 regular season took place on Sunday, Sept. 27, marking the end of this year’s Home Runs for Kids program at 85 home runs total. Over the past three years, Perricone Juices’ Home Runs for Kids Program has raised a total of $146,250 for Miracles for Kids and their 300+ critically ill kids and their families in need.
